    Four months ago, I decided to buy the truck I have always wanted. The F250 SD Diesel. It’s a 2011. So far, it’s everything I expected, with one exception. During the selling phase, I was told the exhaust filter cleaning cycle ran every 500 miles or so. That has NEVER been the case. I’ve got 7,000 miles on it, and the exhaust filter cleaning has occurred every 150-225 miles like clockwork. I average an incredible 22-23 mpg on the highway, until the cleaning cycle occurs and it plummets. Between city and hwy over the 7,000 miles I average 18.7 mpg, including an occasional trailer tow. I know I shouldn’t complain because that is good MPG for a truck this size. I’ve had it back to the dealer twice over this issue, and they have no answers. Can you PLEASE try to find out the truth about what I should expect with my cleaning cycle? I would love to get back some extra MPG. Thanks, and have fun. It’s an awesome truck to drive!

      Thanks for the question, Tom. I will be asking the engineering team about this. If you think of anything else before the 8th, please let me know. I’m delighted that you are so happy with this truck and I will let them know that, also. Expect an answer to this early the week of the 13th.
      And, you can count on it: I will have fun.
