Happy Fx4 diesel owner
By Happy old dude on
2008 Ford F-250 Super Duty XL 2dr Regular Cab LB (5.4L 8cyl 6M)
I bought this truck to replace my last 4wd. We purchased a 30' travel trailer and the previous truck just couldn't cut the mustard! This SD justs runs away with it! This is my first diesel as I never would pay the extra but I always wanted one. WOW! I shouldn't have waited so long. I have always loved my Ford trucks and this one is the best I have ever owned. For it's size, it gets decent mileage. I can squeak 17mpg on the highway driving 68-70 mph. If I drive 80 mph, it get about 15mpg. Combined city and highway and driving pretty hard, I get 14mpg. Not bad for a giant, heavy truck. I had a 76 Chevy 4wd way back when that got 10 mpg and if I were really careful I could get 11mpg!
I hate the poorly designed door pockets. I use them and anything I put in there rattles. That ought to tell you how much I like this truck. That is all I have to complain about!
