Thought I would tell you about this every day driver I got a couple of months ago. It's a 14 model F-150, and being in the business I'm in, and being as OLD as I am, I'm pretty hard to impress these days, however, this truck has.
It has an Eco Boost 3.5 V-6 in it, I drive it about 44 miles one way to work every day, and now that it has 3600 miles on it, the average since I got it is 18.2 mpg. That's a lot of stop and go, and I have not had it on a highway trip yet, but I would say it will do a lot better there at constant speeds.

It really has the power when you need it, you just have to kind of 'drive' into it' since it takes a little while for the turbo to kick in.
I give it a thumbs up if your looking for a new truck.

Hope ya'll had a great Thanksgiving, I worked all the way through it.
Take care of each other.


  1. That is a beautiful truck! The bat truck is paid for and nearing 100,000 miles. I keep telling myself it makes sense to keep it for another 50,000 miles than I see this! :-) Enjoy.

  2. Thanks B, I really like it, was skeptical at first, but I think it's a good match for my commute every day.
    I like it when they are paid off, but it seems like that's about when you have to start spending big bucks on them. Hope you get another 50 k out of the bat truck!
