2015 Ford F-150: Fuel Economy Update for March
April 3, 2015
March was a busy month for our long-term 2015 Ford F-150. We racked up 2,700 miles over the last four weeks, 2,000 of which were spent towing various trailers. Engineering Editor Jay Kavanagh towed something that vaguely resembles a Miata to and from Sonoma Raceway. I took a similar 2,000-mile trip to purchase a car and lug it home (more on that soon).
Basically, we used this truck as it was intended: to haul stuff. As you'd expect, those towing trips brought the average lifetime MPG down (from 16 to 15.6) but the F-150 still has plenty of time in our fleet to right that ship.
Worst Fill MPG: 14.0 mpg
Best Fill MPG: 17.3 mpg
Average Lifetime MPG: 15.6 mpg
EPA MPG Rating: 20 Combined (18 City/23 Highway)
Best Range: 557.3 miles
Current Odometer: 5,774 miles
