2010 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor: Approaching 100 Bucks Per Tank

No car or truck in our fleet feels the rising cost of fuel more than our 2010 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor. James got all excited when his recent fill came in at $88, but my recent desert excursion nearly resulted in a triple-digit fill up.

I should also point out that this tank was burned away at a rate of 10.9 mpg.

Yeah, I did opt for premium, which is recommended for "best performance". It would have cost an even $90 to fill the Raptor with 87 octane, the minimum requirement. Still, with prices inching back up as they are, I'm fully expecting to see a $100 refill this summer, even on cheaper 87 octane.

You've gotta pay to play. If you want a Raptor, this sort of thing had better not bother you.
