    Considering an F250 with the 6.2 gas 4x4. If any one could tell me what you are averaging for highway mpg (not towing) it would help me in making a decision. Would be giving up a 2011 Chevy 1500 4x4 that I am getting 19 to 20 highway mpg. I need a 3/4 ton for towing a new PJ dump trailer.

    I rented an F250 with the 6.2 and 4X4 last year for a week. Pulled 8X20 enclosed, total 6900#. Around town 9.5 mpg. Highway to and from rental place(empty) 17 mpg. Plenty of power. Not quite like my diesel, but enough to sway me to gas power.

    I love my 6.2L. I have a little over 32k miles on it and bought it new. I can get was professional said around 17mpg on the hwy empty. I get anywhere from 7 to 9 plowing, 10 or 11 salting, and 10-12 towing.
