Fuel economy on 6.2 gas F250

20

Asked by Jan 29, 2017 at 12:59 PM about the 2016 Ford F-250 Super Duty XL Crew Cab 4WD

Question type: General

I am looking for a truck to tow a travel trailer or possibly a 5th wheel.  Most people seem to have diesel.  How does the 6.2 gas compare for mpg?  I have heard that the diesels have to have the cab pulled off the frame for head work or rear of engine work.  Does the gas 6.2 engine also require pulling the cab?

Never heard of pulling the cab off to do engine work. 6.2 will suck down gas like crazy. Well-tuned diesel will get impressive MPGs. Downside is diesel trucks are more expensive and used ones tend to have a lot of miles on them, ones that don't have a million miles on them are going to be pricey.

Looking at how far the engine goes back in a 2016 with a 6.2 gas it sure isn't like my old one. So, you would need to lift the cab off to do head gaskets on a gas engine too right? Looks worse than a van as far as access goes. This has got to add a lot of money to repair costs for labor just to get at the rear of the engine. I really hate this. I really liked this truck. My wife even liked driving it. I can only guess it was built this way since there are a lot of crew cabs now so maybe they wanted to keep the front shorter since the cabs are so big now. Do you know of any slightly older years without the engine placed this far back?. Thanks

I love mine. I get 11 in town and I get 16 on interstate. At 55 mph. Yeap I’m getting passed. But I know I got the speed and power if I want it. In Dallas traffic I see an opening I can punch it and it will pass everyone pulling a load. Wouldn’t trade it.

It is true that you have to pull the cab for major engine work on the diesels. My next truck will be a Super Duty with the 6.2 which seems to have all the power most people need.

I think it was Motor Trend that did a road test of a new F250 4x4 6.2 gas and they got 0-60 in 6.7 seconds and 15mpg in heavy foot test driving.
