    Happy with mine at 23,000 miles. Only thing I don't like is the regen and fuel mileage but as soon as I get $1,000 saved up that will be history. it seems like a very overbuilt engine and will do well if you service it faithfully.

    It is an awesome engine that is choked out by emissions bullshyt. It will pull anything you put behind it but will also get crappy mileage no matter what.

    Crew cab, lariat, fx4 (4x4), 3.55 rear, 20" wheels. Empty highway I get 16-18 at 70-75mph. Towing heavy around 9-11. Overall mixed driving I usually end up around 12-13.
