81,032 miles, and 2776 hours. = 29.2 MPH

However, it had right at 50K on it when I got it a little over a year ago, so I can plead not responsible.

F-250 V-10 Gasoline

6,195.5 miles

269 hours

23.03 mph

The milage is perhaps a little low for meaningful conclusions.
There are no very long trips in these miles.
Most of the towing has been non-interstate roads.
My maximum towing speed is 55 mph.

Anything from 27-mph on up for an average is good so far as keeping idle time to a minimum. Engine life is predicated on a higher than 30-mph average when one reads about the subject, called MTBO, L10 or B50 (Ford and GM diesels at about 225k and Dodge at 385k at present.)

On a couple of the truck forums that I'm on, they rate used trucks based upon their average mph. The higher the mph, the better, indicating a majority of highway driving.

Over 40 mph - excellent
30 to 40 mph - good
20 to 30 mph - fair
Under 20 mph - junk

This, of course, is not the only rating factor, but gives some insight into how the truck was used by its prior owner(s).
