Loved that series. A guy at my firestation got one because of that. My question had always been "Sure, it had better mpg and can tow better; but, can it do both at the same time?". Meaning, what kind of mpg is it getting while towing 10,000lbs vs the mpg of the V-8s while doing the same thing. My friend loved it, but found out the MPG wasn't working for him. He wasn't getting near what was said. He drove it aggressive though, so that is why I still have that question. Real world mpg on the EcoBoost compared.

Just like that last part racing in the desert. They said it was using half the fuel, but didn't say if they were going as fast as their V-8. Did they finish in the same time they would have with the other engine?
