Default Re: 2011 2.3 (auto) should I be getting better mpg's?

How many miles are on the truck? You wont see your best MPG's till you get closer to 10k miles on the truck. That's when it'll be good and broken in.

Its the weight!! i have the auto 2.3 extended cab, and im getting 24 in the city, 29 highway (minus 1.5 if im using the AC) Its way better than the ratings!! i live in Texas and their are no hills or mountains so thats probably why...it even says on fords towing guide that even towing half of the towing capacity with the minimum engine/transmission/capacity will SEVERELY diminish mileage....

ANY weight in the 2.3 will decrease mileage alot. I deliver construction materials for my job all the time and my gas mileage sucks when alot of weight is involved.
