Mileage Report

So...I have just over 250 miles on my Lariat 4x4 and thought I would give a mileage run down for those interested.
First 50 miles was pathetic, didn't hit 20 mpg, I was a bit concerned. Don't judge it by that first trip.
After fifty miles was like some kind of break through, I started seeing the gauge regularity over 30 mpg and the average steadily picking up.
By 150 miles I was averaging 22.1. I reset my trip gauge.
Next 100 miles put me at 26.2 average, it seems to keep climbing.
Mind you I drive conservatively. I typically have it in sport mode as I like to get to speed at a decent rate, but don't mash on it. After I am at speed I typically hang there.
I also live in the country and do limited inner city driving, but the 250 is about a 35/65 city/hwy mix.
First 10 miles can be a bit low, but it seems to warm up and really improve after that, looking forward to putting a few long trips on it, really I have only done about 35 mi max.
Super quiet in the cabin and out considering it's a diesel. Ride is nice and there is plenty of pickup if you want it.
Now I need to get my boat behind it and see how she does. Was trying to break in some easy miles on it first.

Mileage updates

Thanks for the update Johnny Blues...my truck is set to go to production July 31st and was debating on a F-250 leftover diesel at this point vs the F150 new diesel based on if pricing was going to come in similar since they are not offering rebates on the diesel version of F150...my buddy has a newer f-250 that gets awesome fuel mileage pulling a thirty some foot goose neck trailer....will be nice to hear you report your boat towing mileage ratings....

Actual mileage over 6500 miles, not calculated by the truck

Factual numbers based on miles driven and fuel purchased since new, No trailing yet, this will give you what to expect. Stay off the dash and calculate your fuel mileage miles driven over actual purchase gallons.

2018 F150 3.0 lt diesel 6.5 bed, hard tonneau cover, 4x4, 3.55 diff, FX4

Highest 500 miles mpg 23.83 warm weather
lowest mpg 20.53 0ver 202 miles.

Lifetime mpg 22.5 mpg over 6506 miles and 289 gallons of diesel. Oh $864 in fuel.

It's in the numbers boys and girls!

Lower than expected mileage

I purchased an '18 Lariat SuperCrew 4x4 with the 3.0 powerstroke just before christmas and have not achieved the expected mpg or numbers similar to what you guys are reporting.
So far I have about 1200 miles on the truck with an average of 20.9mpg. I'd say 80% of my commute is highway not during rush hour and I travel 75-80mph. Daily commute is 20miles each way.

My average has plateaued at 20.9 despite resetting the trip computer. I use cruise control when I can and don't live in a hilly area. I have had a soft tonneau cover on the bed for the past 500miles. No other mods to the truck.

Any thoughts?

I am averaging about 22 mixed city and 75-80 highway. Winter diesel has been a killer. Was over 25 this summer. That could be a problem unless you are in the south.
