Ecoboost Milage Report

I have put on 1600kms on my ecoboost and have been monitoring my milage with the on board computer and comparing to real world numbers. My computer numbers are accurate to the fuel used verses actual fill up quanities so far. Keep in mind my driving habits are conservative and I have been using cruize control on the highway runs when not in stop and go traffic on the 401. My communte to work is 70kms one way. I have a backflip cover which helps a bit. I had truck weighed full of fuel and myself and came out to 5940lbs.

110kms I average 9.3L per 100kms = 30MPG (imp) = 25 mpg (US)

115kms I average 9.7L per 100kms = 29mpg imp = 24mpg US

120kms I average 11.3 per 100kms = 25mpg imp = 20mpg US

130kms I average 11.6 per 100kms = 24mpg imp = 20 mpg US

Overall ave for 1600 kms so far is 12L per 100 = 23mpg imp = 19 mpg US.

I am using the same gas pump, pumping at the same speed and stopping when the nozzel clicks off. I am within a half a liter at most as compared to the computer usage.

If you were to drive aggresively the numbers would go down quickly.

Cheers

I'm gunna guess the 110kms = 110km/hr etc.

You can tell your truck really starts to work @ the 120km/hr mark..

Fun fact:
I also average 12L/100kms with my 5.4L with city and highway combined.
if drive nicely with cruise on @ 110km/hr i run 9.5-10L/100kms.

yes 110 kph. A 2wd cab and a half which is lighter than a 4x4 supercrew should b closer in milage. I can't complain with the milage.

i dont think you should be using cruise with so few kms on the truck?
vary the throttle more to help break it in?

Break in is over at the 500k mark. The key is to keep it loaded and to vary throttle. Once u hit 500km ur good to go. I have been breaking in theis way for many years, trucks, sleds bikes etc.

Have a look at this site.

okay. sorry to take the thread off topic.
i wish i was getting as good of mileage as you are.
averaging 14 L/100 km on the lie-o-meter in every day driving.
not bad for the 5.4L supercrew 4x4 with 6.5' box and 20" rims i guess.

Have u confirmed ur computer's fuel usage to the actual amount u pump in? If its close the lie o meter isnt far off. u can then do the math with amount and milage. The key is to fill it to the same level everytime.

i have a 2010, it doesnt tell me fuel usage.

and i dont really drive it enough to be able to acurrately track fuel mileage.

I get about 17-18 L/100 with Betsie. Supercab F350 4.5" lift and 35" tires. Those gas burners really do have poor mileage.

2003 F350 Super Cab XLT 6.0L
Smokers exhaust attached to Cab
4.5 lift
35" tires
Her name is "Betsie"

Considering that I drive like a little ol' lady to save on fuel and still only average 16 - 17 mpg US in my Ranger, thats not bad. However, work is 15 min away and I only fill the truck up once every two weeks if I don't drive anywhere else so I'm still not complaining. LR
