Jeez. I mean for crying out loud (while stamping feet).

I want a 3/4 ton grocery getter that I occasionally need to tow something. Want the axles, brakes and suspension and payload but don't need a diesel, v10 or 6.2. Well ... actually its only cuz I want a stone cold reliable 18mpg 3/4 ton. Hmm. Imagine asking for less power and more reliability and fuel economy. Well thats just crazy talk.

Im waiting to get mytruck in for service for over a month. The dealer is really busy and short on loaners. This is starting to give me time go think about the 6.2L. My 6.7L has something wrong that causes it to run noisy, marble-knocking, pinging, rattling any time i drive it. Fuel economy has dumpedto 14-14.5mpg. I really only need the smoker for pulling our 10,000 lb. Travel trailer 12x a year. Even if the 6.2L only nets 13mpg for me, its only$700 additional a year for gas. Thats a far cry fron $8000 for the smoker. Kind of chicken to order one without driving one. And as a daily driver, im not sure what to expect.

Pretty impressive, although the smoke heads will grumble. Most likely the 4.10 rear on that one. Only confirms I'd only take one with the 4.30 unless I have no option to order, with a SWR. Thanks for the find.

I know the SRW does. Thought the dually allowed a 4.10.

Thanks to all who are posting on this thread. I traded a 2001 F-250 SB CC XLT 5.4L in 2 years ago on a Dodge 1500 5.7 CC, and have regretted it ever since. The F-250 was just for groceries and doc's office and Momma's daily driver. It got 12 or so around town and 15 on the road, always driven geezerly by me or Momma... never over 65MPH. My other truck is 2001 F-350 CC Lariat DRW LWB 7.3L (198K miles) used to haul an RV. I recently downsized from 12000# 5'ver to 7500# travel trailer and am considering a 2015 F-250 CC SWB XLT 6.2L truck. I'm pleased to see that the 6.2L has handled a 10K 5'ver in some hills. Thanks to Iggy from AZ for the info. I'm still on the fence about letting go of my old 7.3, still smarting from my move to Mopar and ensuing disappointment.

But thanks to all for the info.

... took a trip last week, 1000 miles up and back
I have about 7800 miles on my truck. I was hoping for better mpg but for what I've got its okay. lol
On relatively flat ground @ 65 mph I could get about 16mpg. Over 70 mph about 14.5 mpg. Remember I have a 4x4 short bed with 3.73 gears.

In town daily driving I get 12 - 12.5 mpg on reg gasoline.

In town on E85 I get 10-11 mpg.

I'm told my mpg my go up a bit more when I get over 10k miles but I don't think it will be that much.

Picked up a grandpa truck in Salem Oregon yesterday and drove back to Montana 700 miles. It is a 2011 F250 4x4 6.2 V8 6 spd auto 3.73 rears and i got it for 20K less than what it would cost me to order the same truck today and it has only 52,000 miles on it. . I ran 70-75 MPH and I went from 200 feet elevation in Salem Oregon up I5 to Portland then 82 east to the Tri-Cities, then 395 North and steadily climbed to Spokane Wa. Elevation @2,000 feet and then over 2 mountain passes going east on 90, one at 3,100 feet (4th of July Pass) and one at 4,700 feet. (Lookout Pass) Then it was rolling hills and 65 MPH max due to deer and elk on the road all the way from St Regis MT up 135 to 200 to 28 to 93 to my valley which sits around 3,000 feet. Mileage was a LOT better than expected. Overall for the trip i averaged just under 55 MPH including around 50 miles total of town driving and the balance interstate and 2 lane roads. She averaged 14.6 MPG and this is coming from 200' elevation over 2 mountain passes home to my valley at 3.000 feet. Best i saw was once i got into Montana on a 100 mile stretch of reasonably level road where i saw 16.3 mpg with the cruise set at 65 MPG. BTW, Yes, i did check 2 tanks on paper and the trip odometer is spot on. Here are some pics I was also locking out gears on the hills and passes to keep it from shifting as well.............

These trucks are bricks compared to the 150 and heavier so these numbers aren't surprising. More fuel to go faster because of bad aerodynamics. Thinking about a 6.2 with 430 gears and am watching for any experiences.

I owned a 2011 F250 6.2 CCSB with 3.73 axle and was only getting around 11.2 mpg, 7.8 when towing 7500lb trailer.
Had the hard 2-3 shift while accelerating down an on ramp while towing my trailer and thought I lost the rear end.
Bought last May & traded this July. Not sure if you all have good ones or I had a bad one but I expected a little better mileage.
