yeah I know two people with "comparable" F150's, if you want to say that, they both average below 14mpg. Not to mention both are slower at WOT, and slower in real world everyday driving. And like you said I have the 4.7L, they have the 5.4L, that's sad that I am faster all around, and even though the charts may not admit to it, I can tow as much as them(my truck is rated for 6,250 lbs, but I've had near 6,000lb on it and hardly knew it was behind me, braking was pretty much a breeze, and although it didn't accelerate fast, I had plenty of power). My wife's father's F150 has towed around 7,000lb and when we were in there I felt like the damn thing wouldn't stop, even with the trailer brakes, and it was such a slug. Also got around 8mpg at 65mph. Gotta say I like the new ford engine's though (not the vehicles unfortunately lol)
