Thinking about going back to a F250, but would like to stay away from a diesel, anyone got any input on the gas 6.2L. Personal experience with gas mileage with and w/o towing, reliability. I usually only tow a 6x10 trailer to camp and durhamtown, no real heavy loads.


...just joking, seriously.
I like my 6.2L...(2018 F-250)
Interstate speed between 65 and 70mph = 16 to 18 mpg.
Towing 30' camper with sway bars at 65 to 70 drops it to about 8 to 10 MPG. But I don't pull that camper often.
12 to 15MPG towing my smaller camper and boats.
I just recently sold a f250 with the 6.2 engine. Absolutely loved that motor. Pulled my 32 ft fifth wheel camper with it. Got about 7 mpg loaded and 14ish empty. I could replace 3 6.2 engines for the price of 1 diesel engine. Only sold it because I have a new company truck. It's a diesel but I kept my gas burner Chevy for the camper. Wouldn't buy another diesel personally.
If your looking at a new truck aren't they putting the new 7.3 gas engine in them? I know the reviews on it are looking real good. It's also a push rod eng. Instead of an overhead cam eng.

Unfortunately can’t afford new, typically try to buy with under 50,000 miles, and keep them for along time. My 07 has just under 130,000 and I have owned it for 7 yrs. I have a crew cab with the 6 1/2 ft bed which I really like, just would like more cab room since the kids are older and activities that we do with the truck.
