better off buying a diesel, the fuel economy is way better than the gas, motor, well chevys anyways, fords seem to suck down the diesel. anyways, my tuner built a turbo kit for these trucks and was planning on marketing it, but dont know if it ever came about.

Yeah, I used to average 24mpg's with my Dmax, on a conservative tune.

getting a turbo for your F-150 will only hurt your gas mileage.

I would suggest a Troyer Stage I kit for your truck.
SCT tuner with 3 custom tunes for you specific truck, cold air intake, magnaflow exhaust.

You get another 42rwhp on average and 1.5-2mpg increase (if you have your foot out of it) all for around $1,000 I believe

man why did you sell that beast..and well does the superchargers help with gas mileage at all cuz they run off the pulleys so it would seem they would hurt it more..and turbos dont hurt gas mileage..they help if anything at all..

When driving easy an not hitting boost, your truck will get the exact same gas mileage as it did before you installed a turbo.

Now... when you spool up that turbo which shoots more air in, your truck is going to shoot more fuel in to help keep the air/fuel ratio safe, hence burning more gas.
