Yeah, but if your driving a distance, you are sure going to notice when you can't get over single digits on the highway. While gas motors generally don't do well towing, the ecoboost is already a good bit worse than Fords own V8 in the trucks on MPG. The turbo / super charged engines seem to take a much larger penalty when tasked. Accordingly, the potential fuel economy numbers seem to vary a lot more. It's less of an issue in sedans and what not, but trucks do actually get put to work some of the time, and for some people, quite often.Ramfan said:I think that is what he means. The Ecoboost would pull a load just as nice and at less rpm but will drink fuel to do it. But really no gas motor does great on fuel when pulling a load. Although most 1/2 tons are not used to pull daily anyway. Our coming Ecodiesel should be the cats meow for regular light and moderate or 1/2 ton towing.
