I picked up a new 17 250 on the 23rd of Dec and have about 1500 miles on it now. I am planning on doing a write-up this weekend on my experience so far. I will say I have had both gas and diesel Super Duties and this is the best gas engine SD to date. The torqueshift G transmission appears to be a perfect match. Although is is lighter duty from the standard torqueshift I have not seen a difference in tow ratings from the 250 to the 350 that is transmission related. The shaggin wagin weights in at about 8500 pounds so I will provide more information on towing in the spring. My daily commute is about 80 miles round trip each day and I am keeping hand calculated numbers in a log. I will say there has been some up and down but the trend is up. Current tank shows 15.7 on the computer but but actual calculations will be about a half a mpg lower. My commute is not highway.
More to follow as there never seems to be alot of good day to day information on the gas Super Duties.
