The 2014 Ford F-250 with a gas engine may have an average miles per gallon in the low-to-mid teens, according to Autotrader.com. The Environmental Protection Agency does not test the fuel economy of heavy-duty pickup trucks.
The fuel economy rating on a Ford F-150 pickup truck varies between 9 and 17 miles per gallon. Gas mileage depends on the year and model of the Ford F-150, as older generations generally used more gas to operate at the same level of efficiency of newer models.
The most effective way to use less fuel is to accelerate more slowly and avoid braking hard whenever possible. People driving trucks might also want to remove as much as they can from the truck bed.
To replace the fuel tank in a Ford F150, drain the tank, remove the heat shield, place jacks under the fuel tank, and remove the straps on the tank. With assistance, lower the fuel tank, disconnect the fuel line, and remove and replace the tank.
