    Grady its just a matter of finding the right price/ financing. I had a 2010 5.4 . Was 13 months old. Went in for an oil change and tire rotation and found out Local Fords had a 4 day 0% financing ,so basically just resigned papers and traded keys. We are going through this again here with a few Chev dealers offering same deals as are the Fords again. Now making room for 2013,s .. Don,t think i'm allowed near the dealer anymore though... as per the Boss(Wife) but thats ok i really like this truck.


    One word of advice to any and all . If any of you are in SNOW country and really NEED SNOW tires. Don,t suggest going to the 20" rims. Did some enquiring on cost of snow tires to fit...1800.00 for 4 tires ,mount,balance .
    Another option i asked about is separate 17" rims with Snow tires ,Rims mount and balance minus tire sensors(80.00) each also 1800.00. Yikes... We have snow and usually make due fine with a few sandbags and 4x4 and drive carefully but if i want to drive alot in the snow this may be an option i need to look at.

    US of course but a Liter is a Liter is a Liter as fare as i know LOL. I just divided your Liters to Gallons and your Killometers to Miles. That number is what i would honestly expect for a Ecoboost so the math looked right to me LOL

    A litre is a litre but a Us gallon is smaller than a imperial gallon and yes km,s = X miles but thats where a conversion chart helps and i can't find mine.

    Yea thats way off but then again i find it hard to believe any full size truck is going to get 25MPG. Even my diesel doesnt do that and anyone who has one who has said it gets it i call BS on them LOL

    I think seeing 18 out of a Full size is impressive.

    Are we converting from uk or European standard?

    If uk then you are getting 13.
    If European then almost 15.

    Unless I'm reading something wrong?
