Calculate fuel mileage by dividing the amount of miles traveled by the gallons used. Make sure you reset your odometer after refilling your tank. On your next refueling, note the gallons used.
A car fuel mileage calculator is available online on fueleconomy.gov, a United States federal website that provides authoritative information regarding fuel economy. The site also includes a link to money saving tips on future fuel costs.
As of 2016, the U.S. Department of Energy's website FuelEconomy.gov provides fuel economy figures for pickup trucks. The site allows searches by make, model, size class and vehicle type.
Original Ford fuel lines are available in the Fuel Injection System and Related Components subsection within the Air and Fuel Delivery section of the Ford Parts website. Entering a VIN on the homepage ensures accurate search results. Aftermarket lines are also available from online retailers such as
The Ford diesel and gasoline engines perform differently in fuel efficiency and towing capacity, as of 2015. The smaller Ford EcoBoost diesel engines generate more horsepower and torque, allowing them to pull heavier loads while using less fuel than their larger gasoline powered counterparts.
The 7.3 diesel engine is used in a Ford 50 Super Duty truck, which is comparable to the engine used in the F-250 trucks. Several F-250 and F-350 trucks have many of the same features.
Gasoline is made when refineries break down the hydrocarbons found in crude oil. Crude oil is formed from the remains of animals and aquatic plants that lived billions of years ago and have been covered in sediment and exposed to high temperatures and extreme pressure.
With the advent of gas-powered engines in 1892, gasoline, once considered a mere byproduct of the crude oil refining process, began its rise to become one of the most used fuels in the world. The United States uses roughly 44 percent of the world's gasoline.
As of 2015, Ford makes 14 fuel efficient models. Among these are the Fiesta, Fusion, Escape and F-150. Ford also makes the Fusion in hybrid and the Focus as an all-electric vehicle.
