Why not the litres used? Redundant DTE.
No permanent way, you might be getting mixed up by auto engine off after 20 mins no activity, aftermarket yes, and the one Iíve seen can still be turned on.
Why not permanent disable from the company that still has seatbelt alarm disable procedure in the op manual?

Forgot about that incredibly stupid DTE setup, hope that is addressed for 19.

Seen a video where a guy put a jumper wire on the auto start/stop button on the dash so it was like you pressed the button every time you start your truck. Then the engine stays running.

Brother and two uncles both have '18's with that stupid "feature" and they all get mad at me when I ride in their trucks since the first thing I do is press the dash button. I hate the engine switching off every time you stop. Saw the F150 diesel does it too which is idiotic.

Glad my '18 F250 doesn't do that.

I love my new styled Super Duty compared to the '16 I had before. It's basically the same in the cab as the F150 which I'm fine with since those interiors are really nice.

Only at 14,000 km though, no trouble yet.

I like the styling but wish they retained the old style exterior door handles.

It is an EPA function. If you use your foot on brake rite it will not shut off. A wire under dash tricks it to thinking a trailer is hooked on. Mine was shut off with a tune. The tune really dialed in 10 speed. Fords seem to have trouble with the wheal ends on the 4 wheal drive. A lot of upgrades but the same system. I dislike the gear shift. End up pulling it into manual. It would be nice to pull it to a stop, and then sideways for manual. And why has a pickup with this kind price tag not got heads up display? Forscan will fix beep if you get out with key in your pocket, adds secure idle, and I think you can disable auto start stop. And why no dead pedal for left foot? And why can you not program 10 seconds on cruise control so you can look around a bit. on rural roads, or heavy snow? Good truck, but room for improvement. 20 mile to the gallon imperial lifetime so not bad

I've never owned any new fords, brother has a expedition.... gives them problems, wife drives a 07 yukon with 6.2.. we like it and fuel economy around 14L/100km.

I've heard about ford not warranty'ing rock beat trailer wiring harness and rear shocks that leak because they're driven on gravel roads....................
Anybody else have these issues?
One reason I've kinda stayed away...

Keep calm and combine on....

A Peterbuilt set of mudflaps under the running boards stops a lot of gravel.

I know how to stop the problem.
1. Lots of mud flaps.
2. Buy from a different manufacturer.

My point was that ford warranty seemed to have issues if you drove on the gravel.... am I the only one that thinks warranty denial due to gravel road use is absurd?
(Its just stories I heard, can be confirmed or denied?)

Built ford tough..... but stay on the highway! 🤣

Co-worker told me he just disconnected the wire going down to the brake pedal. I believe his is a 2018.
Says no alarms either and doesn't have to hit the button every time he gets in the truck.

Remember when GM first went to rear disk brakes on pickups?
Cleverly engineered (calliper on front side of axle) so rocks would sit on the calliper grinding gouges in the disks?
That design was so bad they went back to drums for awhile.
