Lurker just got 2017 F150 2.7

Hi,

I was without a car for 5 years. Rode an XLH in Chicago and walked.

Now about 2300 miles on new F150 2.7 RCLB. I am getting great not yet documented here MPG. I always check my MPG, since I was 16. According to my slow auto feed fillups so far, the F150 mileage calculation is about 0.2 high. I have checked every fill.

The computer says 22.1 MPG so far. Rolling around rural and slow Interstates I see intermittent 25 MPG and a lot of close to 24.

I drive real easy and plan 10 cars ahead. I roll to stops but will jump on it if necessary.

This is the quickest truck I have ever driven.

My tires are over inflated according to the sensors at 39 PSI from the factory. I bet the dealer never checked pressure. I will put at 36 tomorrow.

More when I have more.

The 39psi is helping with the fuel economy. Unless there are traction and wear issues, or you simply don't like the ride, just leave it as is.
