Hey guys I pulled the trigger on a new 2017 F150 2.7 2wd a few days ago and absolutely love it so far. I'm really wondering about the whole auto stop/start thing though, it doesn't bother me, but I have to wonder how much gas it can really save by shutting the engine down for 15 or 20 seconds everytime I come to a stop. I hope the starter is bullet proof considering that it will be used 50x more than if auto stop/start wasn't used. I'm also wondering about the factory oil fill, I just started going through my book but haven't come across anything mentioning it. Hoping a ford guy will chime in with info on how long I'm supposed to stay on the factory oil fill. The factory fill appears to be over full also. After a Hyundai Veloster, Toyota Matrix, and VW Golf sportwagon it feels good to buy American(we do love our VW, its now my wifes). Looking forward to hearing any advice about my new F150.
