What kind of MPG's is the 6.2L gas Ford getting?

Just curious if the 6.2L is actually improved MPG's over the 5.4 in the F250?

I'm getting the same mileage towing my cargo trailer with the 6.2 as I did with the 6.0 diesel. (10 mpg or so). When I'm not towing, the mileage goes up to 13 or so. This is all city driving.

Trucks are never going to have great mileage....

Thats what I get with the 5.4. Ford says on their website the 6.2 has a 15% fuel efficiency increase. I figured it was probably bs.

i have 2 of the new 6.2's, pickup gets about 13-13.5 without towing, around 10.5-10.8 towing, dumptruck gets maybe 12 without towing and, pretty close to 10.0 towing

the towing mileage comes from towing about 3000lbs normally to 9000lbs rarely
