No. It's actually thirstier than 4.0L SOHC. This argument goes on between my father and I monthly. I have a 2009 Sport 2WD 5Spd/4.0L, he has a 2010 FEL package 5spd, I average around 21 IMPG winter/ 27 IMPG summer, he averages 25 IMPG winter/32 IMPG summer. I wanted an FEL for the mileage, but needed the 4.0L to haul my boat twice a year. He gets to brag all year about his truck, right up until we hook on to my rowboat, then he's quiet for a hour, twice a year.
