Cost to Drive
The cost to drive the truck is estimated to be $4.36 per 25 miles. This figure assumes the truck is driven 15,000 per year and gas costs $2.44 a gallon.
In 1999, Edmunds.com voted Ford's F-250 Super Duty as "most wanted" in the $10,000 to $25,000 price range. The Edmunds editors praised the number of styles to choose from and the truck's horsepower and torque, but noted the interior was not refined.
The Ford F-250 is popular among people who need a vehicle for hauling. Heavy cargo can reduce fuel efficiency, so if you are hauling a trailer or boat, the truck's gas mileage will be lower.
Using air-conditioning doesn't use more gas. In fact, if you're driving over 40 miles per hour, you'll save more money by rolling up the windows and using the air. Additives and gadgets that claim to improve fuel efficiency are also generally ineffective.
Gas-saving devices that are found to be effective are keeping your engine warm, not idling for too long, keeping your vehicle tuned up, properly inflating tires and driving at a steady pace.
