I Just completed a 10 state tour averaging about 80+ MPH through most of it. some serious headwinds as well coming down NE, KS and OK. And yes i filled up right when i got home. Not a fan of Eco mode after i turned it on the last 5 miles.Meh, did it all the time on my '13 and '17...no issues.
I just pulled up to the pump when I took that pic.
What’s your driving style like while you’re in Eco mode? I’ve wondered if aggressive driving while in Eco mode doesn’t actually lead to worst fuel economy. I don’t have hard test data, but I felt like I saw that when my wife had her STi and Top Gear saw something similar when using a Prius to chase an M3 around a track (the M3 got better fuel economy than the Prius).About 4500 miles turned so far, mix of interstate. Basically sea level. 3:55 rear
Did 300 + miles yesterday at 16.6 per gallon. eco mode. Half interstate, 60 to 78.
Am I doing something wrong. Some really good mileage numbers put up here by others.
Only 0.1 mpg better with eco mode
How do I get 18 to the gallon? Like to know the secret other than 55 mph
I got about 16.7 in the old 2002 7.3. Thought I was going to be a fuel conservationist with this new truck.
What kinda fuel mileage do you think we'll see with the new 6.7l diesel with the new 10 speed tranny? 20mpg on the highway w/o towing?
First 700 mile road trip to Montana, not even broken-in yet and got 19.2 mpg averaging 75 mph. The way back loaded with 3000 lb. camper mileage dropped to 14 mpg. Can only get better as engine breaks in.
I wonder if elevation makes a difference. Less air density and higher speeds? I rarely drive under 5000 feet. Grasping, but an idea..."not even broken-in yet and got 19.2 mpg averaging 75 mph"
Well that sucks
Gotta do some research.
16.5 @300 miles. No eco. No change @ 4500
