2008 F-150

Im considering buying a 2008 FX4 f-150. Althought i like the truck alot is their any ways to improve their gas mileage. The gas mileage will not prevent me from getting it but it would be nice to get the most out of gas these day.

I like the looks of that truck. Your not gonna do a whole lot of difference on mileage. Main thing is to drive it like your white. Accelerate slowly and try running under 65 on the interstate.
If they're dumb enough to be lured in by plastic you're really just doing them a favor.

Know your target before you pull the trigger.

Probably and obvious answer, but make sure you have the right amount of pressure in you tires.

The best things i ever did for my gas mileage were putting a bed cover and electric fans on my 2000 Ford.
