This is the biggest, blackest and baddest of the Ford trucks that I see around Miami. It also looks brand new. This is a 5.4 liter Triton V8. Depending whether it has automatic or manual transmission, the proud owner is lucky to get more than 12 miles to the gallon of gas, which is costing on the average $ 3.80/gallon in Miami (lowest octane gas, and more if the octane content is higher.) Me? I get 22 mpg with my car and I am paying $4.10/gallon for the highest grade gas. I am going broke. Rumors have it that the price of a barrel of crude oil may almost double in the near future. Too bad I am not an Arab prince!
