I have the 2000 6cyl 4. Well change up things with this fine Vehicle. This thing struggled, and I mean struggled. Join us and learn or give help to others who do the same. I was using 2001 models to compare models just to be constant in my research.
First off I believe gas mileage has much to do with how it is driven, go easy on the gas pedal and brakes. Serving all of North Carolina! It will still get relatively decent gas mileage, but it has more than enough torque to tow and is nearly bullet proof in stark contrast to the V6 that replaced it. I could see a maxed out v6 being an issue, but again, only if I manage to load the van that much. If you're squatting from the build on an E150, you won't even be able to think twice about towing. I can only speak to my personal experience, but here's the deal with me, I've had two E150s. On a recent 1,200 mile … round trip from Tennessee to Maryland, my van averaged 21.
But that's not nessesarily correct. But again, I have to keep way more of an eye on my weight than someone with an E250 or even E350. Seriously I wouldn't be afraid to buy one with over 200000 on one of those motors. I do use good Michelin tires and keep them pumped up to 55 psi. On a recent 1,200 mile round trip from Tennessee to Maryland, my van averaged 21. Don't be a jerk, be respectful of others. But that's not nessesarily correct.
From the Outer Banks to Raleigh to Charlotte to Boone and everywhere in between. This outstanding Ford is one of the most sought after used vehicles on the market because. I was sure the e150 v6 was perfect, but here are 4 main items I'm trying to rationally consider here. This will allow people to search for topics related to their interest and will make the sub more useful for everyone. But that's not nessesarily correct. I didn't even have it loaded down at the time apart from what came with the factory conversion. I do use good Michelin tires and keep them pumped up to 55 psi.
The first was a 4. On a recent 1,200 mile round trip from Tennessee to Maryland, my van averaged 21. With that said I have a tow package and I can tow and have before, even with my build. I drive a lot for work and gas mileage is a big consideration for me. Need tips or help on making it work as you travel or just stay in one spot? Well change up things with this fine Vehicle. If you want to load down your vehicle with a lot, build it with heavier materials etc, or have a lot of towing capacity the E250 is better, but imo it's an unnecessary luxury for basic van dwelling.
But that's not nessesarily correct. With that said, I have not personally driven a 4. I do pack light so to speak, so my vehicle isn't weighed down a whole lot with a ton of heavy shit, but you know a lot of conversions will do this and that's the reason most higher end and heavier class b's are built on E250 frames. Living the van life Live in your van, car or truck or want to? E150 cargo vans are almost identical to the E250s. Now, I drove the 4. As for me I am absolutely happy with my E150 + 5. On a recent 1,200 mile round trip from Tennessee to Maryland, my van averaged 21.
Almost everyone on here will tell you that a diesel will be your best bet for towing, and that the E250 provides more towing capacity which is absolutely true, but you need to decide what your weight perimeters will be with towing, and where your budget diesels are more expensive to buy, more expensive to maintain is to find a happy medium. I havent calculated weight or anything so any insight on me being fine or underestimating is appreciated. Secondly, fluxofapathy is correct when it comes to hills and having extra power on tap. Well change up things with this fine Vehicle. This Ford Econoline Commercial Chassis boasts a Gas V8 5. Some sites even list them as having the same. Typical mileage for full size vans with a small V-8 is around 12-13 city, and 14-17 highway, depending on load, engine size, etc.
It was absolutely gutless coming up inclines. I do use good Michelin tires and keep them pumped up to 55 psi. Even though gas is really cheap right now, it will not last long. That's just the nature of it. I do use good Michelin tires and keep them pumped up to 55 psi. An E150 will get most everyone by just fine. .
