"I have been a chevy owner(unfortunately) for the past ten years. Chevy cannot stand up to this beast. All of my friends have chevy's and i've had about five calls just today to come pull them out of the mud on their fields. It is exellent in every way, I usually get about 18 mpg driving around town, and on the highway the best i've ever had was about 26 mpg."

"A Kenworth Cattle Truck would get better fuel mileage. I am from a Ford Family and this is my 6th Diesel pickup. It is a F350 Crew Cab 4x4 Dually Lariat. I have 10,000 miles it gets 6 mpg pulling a moderate size load and 11.5 mpg without any load at best. Less power than either the 6.0 or the 7.3 Litre. Interior is not as plush as my 2005 was. All but impossible to change a fuel filter when you are stranded on the road and you had better not skip a gas pump. I have never owned a Dogge but I will own one next time and suggest the same for anyone thinking about a Ford. Have several friends with Dodges and getting along great. My 2005 - 6.0 diesel was great until it had 90,000 miles on it then it went to pot and could not keep it out of the shop. I am very religious about maintenance and drive quite a distance at start up and try to never overload. Very UNSATISFIED. Pickup is setting parked, can't justify driving it. Save your money and buy a Doge. After you have had it a while send me $500 because I saved you several thousand and a lot of anguish."

"I purchase the Ford because of the Power Stroke engine. I had a 1997 7.3L 202,000 miles sold for $12,500. I had a 2003 6.0L 210,000 miles sold for $20,0000. I expect the value of the truck to remain high so when I get to 200,000 miles it will have a good resale value. The mileage started out at 15 mpg 2.0 mpg less than the 2003. I have put a K&N stile air filter on it and increased the the mpg to 16 mpg overall. Driving highway at 65 mph I get 18.3 mpg. I lose mpg when driving from field to field at 40 to 45 mph. I would like the transmission to shift into OD at 40 to 42 mph like the 2003 truck did and I believe that I would get an average of 17.5 mpg for all driving. At 20,000 miles the mpg finally got better. I would recommend this truck to anyone for value and comfort of driving."

"I have had my 2008 F-350 King Ranch LB with A.R.E cab high shell for 16 mo. I have 15200 miles on it. Would have had more but got hurt and could not drive for 7 mo. The truck has had no problems at all . Fuel miles has been about 13 to 14 in city and 16 to 18 highway with out tow. I use cruise control at 58 to 60 mph. This is after break in on the diesel 6.4. The gas meter on the truck says on highway 20 to 22 but that wrong. I knew the truck uses more fuel so why gripe about my miles. I think for a truck of this size it does well. I see others complain about miles mpg then why did you buy a big truck in the first place. Every where I go people love the truck. I'm 60 years old and had a few trucks and cars in my life, and I can say this Ford truck is the best truck I have ever had. Ride great for a big truck, something I have to look for a place to park it because of the size but I don't care it worth it. This is a no bull report, because I love the truth about my auto good or bad. I use Amsoil CJ-4 5w40 syn. This will be my last truck till I go home to be with the Lord !!"
