Re: fuel economy
I just purchased a 2005 Ford, F250, powerstroke 4x4. Got 300 miles on it
now. Made a 160 mile trip with it. Drove it at 60 mph, then 75, then down to
50 at various speeds for 15 or so minutes. In other words varied my speeds
for breakin purpose.
Filled her up this morning and got 18.9 miles per canadian gal.
Your gal has 3.8 litres and a Canadian gal has 4.5 litres. So roughly that
would be around 17 mpg.
Also driving into a 20 mph wind coming home.
