I get back to DC quite a bit on business. Driving a big truck in that traffic is not something I would like to do on a regular basis.

My wife and I are headed to Oregon tomorrow up through western Nevada. I suspect there won't be too much traffic to worry about along that route.

They're just excited because FORD has re-entered the diesel pickup truck market for the first time since 2002.

And they're all boning up on having to maintain two different engine coolant systems. For starters.

We picked up our 2011 F250 Lariat on Dec. 23--Quite a Christmas. Retirement in 3 years-one goal done, one more to go-Trade the 20 ft. 2008 Safari SE for a 25 foot. Great truck--have one question--there is a whine for about a minute when starting up--the dealer said it was the turbo warming up--anyone else notice this? After a minute or so it goes away and is usually only on the initial start up.

Nice looking truck. Is the 10 mpg towing or solo? I assume this is the 6.4 engine.

BTW - you may want to check the spelling in your signature.......

I have the same, it's normal, mine sounds more like jet warming up. Doesn't happen when it not cold outside.

I love mine. Currently I'm averaging 14.1 mpg when pulling our Stream. But I usually have a kayak strapped on bed racks so I'm sure that doesn't help the aerodynamics.
I got the shortbed and yes, I miss my 33 gallon tank from my '06. That 26 gallon is a pain.

Long Bed versus Short Bed and other updates

Nice to see all the comments since I started this post a while back. We now have over 9,000 miles on our 2011 Ford F250 Diesel with zero issues.

We upgraded our AS to a larger 2010 Flying Cloud 30 last July so we are now towing around 10,000 pounds. From huge mountain grades to very strong crosswinds this truck is amazing. We pass cars going up major grades with our AS in tow!

Downhill the difference between the '10 and '11 is pretty remarkable. The speed holding downhill is even better whether towing or not.

I had originally chosen a long bed crew cab. My dealer talked me out of it and I'm very glad he did. Parking without trailer can be a real issue for long beds and personally I've never needed the extra space. If you really need a ton of space go for the long bed and F350. Most of us though will likely benefit from the F250 crew cab shorty.

Now I'm looking at replacing the stock 28 gallon tank with a Titan 50 gallon tank. Anyone been down that road? Does it void the warranty since Ford dealers won't install it (not that I can find anyway)?

Happy New Year!

You can check out forums like The Diesel Stop which have a section on the new superduty. They have quite a few postings on the upgraded tank.
