'03 F150 gets about 17 on the road and 9-10 pulling a 14' tandem axle trailer with two walkbehinds. This truck was in the shop a couple of weeks ago. Rented an '11 F150 from Uhaul for a few days. The computer said it got right at 13mpg pulling the trailer. It had a v-8 but don't know what size.

Mix of city highway and street diving with trailer on full time, 6.6mpg.
I get a solid 10 pulling same weight, 6.0 gas 2500HD. Get rid of the lift you should get the same. A lift might look good but there are only disadvantages to having a lift kit in a truck you use for work.

350 TBI almost 300K miles and I don't want to know MPG but whatever it is it is even out by the reliability of the motor. I did the stock EGR and MAP sensor and it was night and day.
