F-150 XLT SuperCrew 4x4 2.7L - Fuel Economy?
The advertised and celebrated fuel economy (as per YouTube) is B.S. so far. I've been driving in Vaughan, about 75% city and 25% highway and have averaged 18L/100km. I have eco mode on, 4x2 and I am legitimately driving the slowest I ever have and I'm not a speeder anymore to begin with. The truck will periodically, but not always, auto start and stop which helps but I'm still 5-7L/100km higher than everyone else I know in similar conditions. People report 9L to 13L/100km. Quarter tank has got me about 120km. How is that possible? I've remote started the vehicle three times for a period of 1-2 minutes too, so I know that isn't going to tip the fuel economy too much.
I had a 2017 Dodge Ram Sport with 5.7L and had a comparable mileage (a bit higher) but I was driving that truck with a lot more uh...enthusiasm...at the beginning lol. And I remotely started that truck for much longer.
Does anyone have any advice (no anti-ford, it doesn't help)? Will the truck get THAT much better as I pile on the KMs, or am I missing something? It's used as a commuter until the next month until I'll be using it to transport materials etc., so this is kind of puzzling.
