Ecoboost Gas Mileage, all hype?

I heared all this hype about the great gas mileage on a F150 with the Ecoboost engine, rumors of 25-27mpg. So I searched on Fuelly.com to see if I could find anything and came up with these averages:

16.3
16
15.9
15.3
15.7
17.2
18.1
17.5

http://www.fuelly.com/car/ford/f-150/2011
I found only 1 guy who broke 20mpg once.

Someone on here did a review on it and had similar findings. He said once you're in boost, forget it, MPG's go to the crapper. I guess it really only does well cruising down the highway and the engine isn't under much load.

I read an article that the epa mileages are obtained with the best combo of axle ratio to engine and the ecoboost was done with 3.15 axle.

Do they even make a 4 cyl ecoboost? Never heard of it if they do.

Sooo did they get the 27mpg from a single cab 2wd going down a 5% grade with a 50mph tail wind or what? I don't see how they can say 27 when it averages around 16.

LOL right..

I'm 20+ under 65 in the summer.
I'm < 17 under 65 in the winter.

Cold weather kill the MPG on all trucks...too many factors.

From what I can gather on checking out the forums the ECO Fords are about equal to Tacoma mpg in similiar driving and you get alot more upside in power and towing.

That's all cool and all but how many of us want a full size? I don't. Harder to park, higher cost and can't offroad in tight trails. As it is my neighbor has to park on the street because his F150 would block his wife from getting out of the garage. It would be the same at my house.

This and bad resale, less reliable. Its probably a good thing for people who want/need a full size, but if it gets the same mpg as a new taco, Ill stick with the taco. It just suits me better, if I needed a full size I would get a diesel.

Who knows. The Geo Metro had a 1.3 liter 3 banger. It made an awesome 49 or 55 horsepower but got like 50 MPG. A cheap ass manager at work just got one. It is such a horrible little car.
