Default MPG Real Numbers!!!

Register to remove these ads. It's free!
Hello all,

I would like to know what the REAL MPG is. None of the crap that the dealer states or what people who floor it off of every red light. I am looking for MPG numbers that most people get on actual driving. I put 3500 miles on my current 2010 5.4L f-150 and i'm in the 14 to 15mpg range. I am hoping the Rapter is better.

Thanks all!!!

Jeff.

2011 with about 3800 miles on it and primarily city driving (in Houston) it getting me just under 11. I don't drive it like I stole it %100 of the time but I don't pussyfoot around either...

I highly doubt you are going to do better than 14-15 in any Raptor.

You know what they need to fix... how sitting idle makes your AVG MPG go down. If I let my truck warm up for 15 min every day for a week it will drop .5 avg mpg. You think the truck would be smart enough to know its not moving so dont factor that time.

makes sense for it to go down. you're getting zero mpg while you're going zero mph. I could care less what the instantaneous mileage is, I'd like to see real calculated mpg as well, rather than the computer readout, and not guys pressing reset while doing 50 mph downhill behind a tractor trailer to get their instantaneous reading.

With today's technology and the ability to monitor things the way they can it sure would be nice to see a real system that worked better than this estimate...
