'16 F150

Picking up this used truck today.  Getting anxious.

'16 F150 XLT Crew Cab with 6.5' Bed.  38k miles.  I hope it treats me well.

I'm sure it will.  What drivetrain in it?

Did the commute into work with it today about 35 miles at 19.1 mpg.  Really good and about the same as my GMC Sierra 5.3L with cylinder deactivation.  Impressive.

That sounds like  great mileage to me!  My 06 Silverado 6.0 is a gas eater!

But it has torque!!!
I do notice the 5.0 in this compared to the 5.3 in my old truck has a little less torque down low so it needs to downshift earlier.
Traffic was bad last night and I got stuck in standstill too.  Dropped down to 17.9 mpg and now with the ride back to work it is at 19.2 at mid 90 some miles.  If I did out by hand I am certain it would be lower since I have been using the remote starter to warm it up.

I'm getting ready to get a custom tune with diablew, hopefully get a MPG or 2.  Or at least make the 6.0 feel like it should and get the same mileage.  LOL

I wouldn't ever "warm up" a vehicle in the summer.

Start it, let it idle for about 30 seconds, then drive gently for a mile or two.

Then again, my last three explorers all had over 175K on them when I got 'em.

The 98 now has over 250, the Mountaineer I had before is over 300, and the '06 I've had since March is almost at 180.

In the winter, I let em run for a minute or two.

Anything else is just wasting gas.


Have had several "pros" tell me that, and have no found no evidence that refutes their knowledge. ;)

I do the exact same thing.  I also drive very easy when the engine is cold.

Sorry I didn't mean to start the debate on warm up of vehicles.  Next should I ask what kind of oil to use?  LOL

I am lazy and don't like to scrape the windows in the morning during the winter/cold months.  I just use the starter when I walk out the door of the house so it might run 1 minute during the summer before I start driving.

NICE!

I really like the 04-08's. The 09-14's kinda turned me off. But the 15+ they really sharpened them up. And that's a great shade of blue.
