RE: '22 Powerstroke seems a little thirstier than the '21 was.

The other day I made two trips to the city and back… a little bit of city driving each trip and a total of 253 km on 28.1 litres. That worked out to 11.1 litres per 100 km or 21 mpg. Something seems to have changed. With my previous Powerstrokes it seemed to me like the mileage I got on day one was not much different than the mileage a year later. Anyway I’ll be happy if it keeps getting 21 mpg. did you purposly put the US mpg in there? I saw it and I went that sucks, as for us canadians you got 25.4mpg.haha I included the litres per 100km cuz I figured no matter which way I went with mpg it would be confusing.

RE: '22 Powerstroke seems a little thirstier than the '21 was.

Prior to changing the calibration constant the Lie-O-Meter on my 21 was about 8% generous with the mileage it displayed. With very limited data I’m thinking my ‘22 is accurate. How do you change the calibration? 1. With the ignition off wait until the interior lights and screens have completely turned black. 2. Hold the OK button in the left side of the steering wheel for 5 seconds. 3. While still holding the OK button press and hold the start button until "ET" (engineering test) displays in the lower right hand corner of your DIC... Release both buttons. 4. Press OK to acknowledge any warnings screens (door open etc) 5. Press the steering wheel arrow up button to get to the AFE 1000 bias screen. 6. Use the left or right arrows on the steering column to lower or raise the value. Lower number will make the mpg display less generous. So if your mpg is displaying 8.5% too optimistic you would change the value to 915 (91.5% of 1000). 7. Press the OK button to store the new value. 8. Push the ignition button to shut off ignition and exit "ET" mode.

RE: '22 Powerstroke seems a little thirstier than the '21 was.

That looks a little scary alright! I know what you mean regarding how easy it is to not notice the second trailer. I think it is certainly safer for me to double tow than it is for me to have my bike riding on a carrier 13 feet behind my 5vers rear axle, but, because double towing is illegal in BC I carry my bike far more than I double tow. I can not understand why double towing is not legal on all highways. What kind of fuel economy did you get coming home 12V? Hand calc filled to the TOP at every stop, NO double click BS. Palm Springs, CA to Barstow mostly uphill and head winds 7.74, Bakersfield last leg down hill 7.13 headwinds along 58, Ripon 9.4, Corning 8.5 winds coning from my left, Weed 7.13 uphill, 8.82 mountains Roseburg, OR, 9.3 Napavine, WA and I did not fill at home but last tank should be around 9.3 NW, WA. I am happy with those numbers based on double towing along with some headwinds and 35k combined. I towed at 60 mph the whole trip. Normal no wind trip I would be right around 9mpg. 9 mpg sounds pretty good for 35k combined. Mine does 10.1 mpg (23.2 litres per 100 km) towing a single trailer at 24k lbs gross combined ... no wind/60 mph and average over entire loop, so no net change in elevation.

RE: '22 Powerstroke seems a little thirstier than the '21 was.

The upside would have been it would have made upgrading to an Indian a little easier... My friend that is going to help rebuild the trailer has a 17 Darkhorse Chieftain that is VERY nice! I will say I am more than impressed with my 09 FLHTCU ElectraClassic UltraGlide. My two best friends came down to SoCal to visit and ride, ride, and ride some more earlier this month!!! https://i.imgur.com/colC4n3l.jpg Very nice! X2... X3 ... I've been looking at a new Indian. I just don't know if they are $40,000 nice.

RE: '22 Powerstroke seems a little thirstier than the '21 was.

^^^ I talked to the sales manager at my dealership today and he said he doesn’t expect all his orders to be built. He also said there is no way of knowing which will be selected to be built. I might be keeping this one long enough to see the fuel economy improve after all. Better save up for an oil change. :B :B I asked him if GM and Ram were having the same issues and he told me Ford and GM lots are empty, Ram lots are full. So I could either save up for an oil change or …. no, I guess I better save up for an oil change. :)

^^^ So why not order a ‘22 and when it comes in sell your ‘20? Extremely Happy with my 2020... not looking to miss a year of camping either.... If you keep your ‘20 till the ‘22 comes in you won’t be missing out on any camping.

RE: '22 Powerstroke seems a little thirstier than the '21 was.

Pickups haven't depreciated too badly for awhile, especially diesel pickups. That said the last year or two has been strange in that regard. Limited availability and much higher real world pricing on new trucks have really propped up older truck values. I think I could sell my 2015 for what I paid new or very close to it, and that's 7 years and 85k miles later. ya thats what they keep saying but even now I can save over 30K off sticker price waiting for a 2 year lease return. that 30% average hasn't changed in about 10 years. the dealerships keep pumping out adds sayign the used car demand is at its highest and you'll get a lotto of money but when you go its normal maybe a little higher but nothing specatacular.... I was looking at trading in on a new dualie ;) I guess you're meaning you can buy a 2020 for $30k less than 2022 sticker price? That is surprising .... I sold my 2021 for $300 more than 2022 sticker price. no, I could get a 2019 today here for about 30% lower than what it was sold for in 2018/2019. when I bought my 2014 in 2016 it was originaly sold for 86000 bucks, I got it for 51000 including extended warenty and such. the spred is about the same today but the numbers are higher. I was looking at a 2020 a year and a bit ago to replace min but it was still only a single rear wheel and it was 109000 so I said mine still does real good, I'll pass haha I haven’t paid anywhere even close to those numbers for my fully loaded Platinums but like I stated in an earlier post my dealer has been treating me very well.

RE: '22 Powerstroke seems a little thirstier than the '21 was.

But good job running your truck to empty, what sounds like intentionally. Guess the fuel system ain’t much of a concern if you also don’t change the oil though… Seems like about 1/2 the people I know here in Alberta run diesel trucks and I have only ever heard of one fuel pump failure first hand. My BIL had the HPFP replaced on his Duramax under warranty.

RE: '22 Powerstroke seems a little thirstier than the '21 was.

I haven’t filled a Ford from dead empty, but can say my “24 gal tank” in my Chevy holds 24.4 gallons when it is bone dry aka run out of fuel. How I know is not to be discussed, lol! I like to find out how accurate my distance to empty meter is right out of the box .... usually running it 35 km or so past 0 km to empty is about as far as I push it. This one momentarily flashed up a low fuel pressure warning at 1 km to empty. 2km further down the road the tach dropped to zero. I guess 0 km to empty means 0 km to empty.

RE: '22 Powerstroke seems a little thirstier than the '21 was.

Why so many new trucks? Daddy own a dealership? It’s certainly not on account of feeling the need for a new truck. I think my dealership treats me pretty good on the purchase price of the new ones and I have a guy that buys my used trucks who also treats me pretty well. At the end of the day driving a new truck every year just seems to make sense.

RE: '22 Powerstroke seems a little thirstier than the '21 was.

^^^ The chances of me owning this one much beyond the break in period is slim … the next one is on order. My ‘21 did 12 litres per 100 on the 150 km drive home from the dealership (hand calculated). It made as good as 11 litres per 100 km on some highway trips when driving 62 mph. Because I have been filling the ‘22 from a bulk diesel tank without a calibrated meter I can’t be 100% certain of its fuel economy but It ran out of fuel at 1 km to empty and 910 mostly highway km on a full tank of fuel. Assuming a full tank of fuel is 128 litres it got 14 litres per 100 km.

'22 Powerstroke seems a little thirstier than the '21 was.

I'm getting the idea that my '22 F350 (which should be exactly the same truck as my '21) uses at least 15% more fuel than my 21 did. I calibrated the fuel meter on the '21 but I'm not confident that I have the '22 set right ... I haven't filled the truck using a legal for trade meter yet. Filling only to the first click off, the meter I have been using just told me it took 132.5 litres to fill my 128 Litre tank (I figured I had 2 litres remaining so 126 litres is what I was expecting). Has anyone put more than 128 litres/34 US gallons in their 128 litre/34 gallon tank? Even if my pump meter is out 5% I'm feeling quite confident that my '21 was consistently getting better fuel economy.

RE: 2020 F350 6.7 weak start

If I was going to check the batteries I'd unhook the negative terminals on both batteries after parking it. A couple days later I'd check each battery individually. They should read 12.8 volts. My 2011 had its batteries replaced under warranty at just under 3 years old. It would only crank momentarily and if it didn't start the computer would cause the starter to cut out due to low voltage.
