My 2008 6.4 litre Diesel has the poorest milage of all Ford Diesels thus far. Does not make a lot of sense to be going backwards. You pay more for diesel, more for fuel than gas, more for upkeep, and milage is less it seems than gas. What incentive is to have a diesel now. Mine has 21,000 and I get 11-12 mpg daily. 9 mpg towing my horse trailer. Empty and keeping it below 70 I get 14 mpg. The last 6.0 litre I got 16-17 mpg. The last 7.3 litre I got around 20 mpg. That to me is going backwards. I am paying more for less. The comfort is great and truck looks great as it should for $60k. Not many more toys could be put on it. But when it does it's regeneration (cleaning exhaust filter) that takes about 12 miles and does it around every 100-150 miles and seams to use about a 1/8 of tank of fuel is not impressive as it whines up and down during the process. I have had two 7.3's. two 6.0's and now this 6.4. This will probably be my last diesel and Ford if they don't do something drastic. Come on guys, we should being going forward.
Gorgeous truck. Combines utility with luxury. Powerful and better than expected fuel consumption. Ride and handling is excellent. User friendly in all ways including step and rail at tail gate. QUIET!!! diesel engine. Second Carmax purchase. Very pleased with this vehicle.
I have wanted a 2011 diesel F 250 since they were first discussed in truck and camping magazines. I have owned a 2004 F 250 and a 2008 F 350. This new F 250 is the best vehicle I have ever owned without exception. It pulls my toy hauler trailer loaded with either my 800 lb Harley or my 12 foot john boat, outboard motor, and trailer to the campsites we visit with an ease I have never known. The creature comforts are beyond compare. The ride is superb! The handling is comparable to the F 150 I had. The sound system is as good or better than the Audiophile system I had in the F 150 and has satellite radio where the other trucks didn't. Lastly, the fuel mileage is phenomenal for a truck this size. 18-19 MPG around town is the norm not the exception. I get 12 MPG while towing! I can only say this truck is the most beautiful all around winner I have seen in all my 44 years of driving! It is an incredible machine!
