One other thing-forgot to state-mine is 3.55 rear end, electric locker. The differential will very slightly affect your mileage, but probably not enough to matter. I was advised that you want to upsize tires or hsve some very heavy towing needs get the 3.73. I drove them both stock and couldn't tell the difference.

Some of the Frontier's had them. I think the years were somewhere around 05-10 give or take.

They were supercharged not turbo. Ran from 01-05

I just bought a new 2013 Ford F150 XLT with the 5.0 V8 and i'm thinking I may have made a mistake. I am only getting about 13.7 mpg and that's driving it easy.

Striker, the V8 I had in a 2010 F150 got about 13 around town and 17 highway. I don't drive fast either. That is why I was wondering about the 6 Cyl

My brother in law has a 2012 4-door 4x4 Lariat with the 5.0 and averages around 17. The ride is unbelievable too. I drove an eco boost before I bought my F250 and it will fly. My only concern was whether or not the towing capabilities touted by Ford would hold true.

Ummm, that's a lot low. My real-time MPGs are generally 16 or better. Run it to the dealership

Check it out. It looks pretty impressive.

That being said, I have 2 friends who bought new 150's in the last 2 weeks. Both drove the Eco and the 5.0 and felt that the 5.0 had more power. Beats me...
