Ford said Thursday that the EPA rates the rear-wheel-drive diesel pickup at: 22 mpg city, 30 highway, 25 combined. The four-wheel drive one comes in at just 20/25/22 mpg, a figure on par with most gas-fueled pickups and not far off of the 18/25/21 mpg rating of the most powerful engine available in the F-150, the 3.5-liter twin-turbo V-6. That 30 mpg figure is enough to make the rear-drive F-150 a teetotaler among half-ton pickups, however. Its next-closest rival is the 2018 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel, which is rated by the EPA at 20/27/23 mpg with rear-wheel drive. The Ram with four-wheel drive and the diesel is rated at 19/27/22 mpg. MORE: Read our 2018 Ford F-150 review It's not clear how long Ford will hold the most fuel-efficient claim, however. The redesigned 2019 Ram 1500 will offer a diesel V-6, though the truckmaker hasn't detailed that engine yet. Additionally, its standard gas V-6 will come with 48-volt mild-hybrid technology designed to reduce fuel consumption, too—but, again, EPA figures haven't been released. The F-150's 3.0-liter turbodiesel V-6 produces 250 horsepower and 440 pound-feet of torque, and Ford says that's good for a tow rating of up to 11,400 pounds when properly equipped. Curiously, that's nearly 2,000 pounds shy of the maximum trailer rating for a properly-equipped gas-engined F-150. Additionally, Ford says that fleet versions of its F-150 Power Stroke Diesel have a 2,020-pound payload capacity, which shrinks to a still decent 1,940 pounds for versions offered to retail customers. DON'T MISS: Ford's 3.0-liter turbodiesel V-6 explained Ford expects just 5 percent of F-150 buyers to opt for the turbodiesel V-6, which joins four gasoline engines ranging from a 3.3-liter V-6 to a twin-turbo 3.5-liter V-6. Fleet buyers will be able to order the F-150 Power Stroke Diesel in XL and XLT trim levels, while retail shoppers will have to stick with Lariat, King Ranch, and Limited trims. It won't come cheaply, either. On the 2018 F-150, the turbodiesel V-6 is being positioned as the range-topping engine, and it is saddled with a premium of as much to $4,000 depending on the trim level. Dog feared to have cancer had actually eaten four teddy bears... but vet didn't realise until midway through operation  A dog feared to cancer had actually eaten four teddy bears, but the vet did not realise until halfway through the operation. Eight-year-old St Bernard Maisy was taken for a CT scan after she was taken ill, which showed a mass on her spleen and an unusually full stomach, seemingly showing she had not digested her food properly. Her owner, Jane Dickinson, from Dewsbury in West Yorkshire, feared the worst as she took her pet to Paragon Veterinary Referrals in Wakefield. It would not be unusual for Maisy, an elderly dog, to have cancer at her advanced age. However, vet surgeon Nick Blackburn ruled out any fatal disease when he carried out the operation to remove Maisy’s spleen and found her stomach was full of soft toys. Maisy is now reportedly 'loving life' Credit:  Paragon Vet Referrals / SWNS.com He said : "It's fair to say this was not something we were expecting to find! We all know certain dogs enjoy chewing things they shouldn't but managing to devour four full teddy bears is quite a feat. "I know Jane was worried about Maisy as she is quite old for a St Bernard, so we were naturally delighted the operation was such a success and we were able to return a happy, healthy dog to the Dickinsons.” Her owner said she had never seen the gentle giant chewing or eating toys, but that now the operation has been completed Maisy is “loving life”. An x-ray showing the teddy bears within the stomach. Credit: Paragon Vet Referrals / SWNS.com Ms Dickinson explained: "When Maisy went in I did think 'is she coming out?' but she is loving life now - it's like she's got her youth back. "The toys weren't even hers! She will steal the chihuahuas' toys and play with them but I've never seen her trying to chew them. Her eating habits had been completely normal. "I didn't even recognise one of the toys - my brother also keeps chihuahuas and it turns out it belonged to his dog." Maisy has since made a full recovery from her operation and a histology report has shown no signs of cancer. All over the world!

South Korean officials have discussed ways to formally end the Korean War with Judge rejects Missouri governor's bid to dismiss criminal case A St. Louis judge on Thursday dealt Missouri Governor Eric Greitens another legal setback in the sex scandal embroiling his office, refusing to dismiss a criminal invasion of privacy charge stemming from an admitted extramarital affair. The decision by Judge Rex Burlison paved the way for the single-count felony case against Greitens, a Republican under mounting pressure from both parties to resign, to proceed to trial even as he comes under scrutiny for unrelated accusations of computer tampering. Greitens' lawyers last week sought to throw out the privacy case on grounds of prosecutor misconduct, saying St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner, a Democrat, had tried to conceal video evidence supporting the governor and his assertions that the affair was entirely consensual.

Adam Armoush told German television he was wearing a Jewish kippah skullcap in an attempt to prove it was safe to wear one on the streets of Berlin. But the experiment went wrong when he and a companion were set upon in the affluent neighbourhood of Prenzlauer Berg and whipped with a belt by three men who shouted “Yahudi”, the Arabic word for Jew.  The main suspect in the attack, a 19-year-old Syrian named only as Knaan S, surrendered to police yesterday (THU). It is not clear whether he is a refugee. The 21-year-old Mr Armoush is an Israeli citizen of Arab descent. “I'm not Jewish, I'm an Israeli, I grew up in Israel in an Arab family,” he told Deutsche Welle television. Mr Armoush filmed himself being whipped with what appeared to be a belt in a seemingly anti-Semitic attack A Berlin resident, he said he had worn the skullcap to make a point after being warned by a friend it could be dangerous on the streets in Germany. “I was saying it's really safe and I wanted to prove it, but it ended like that,” he said.  Mr Armoush said he had grown up in an atheist family in the Israeli city of Haifa. He began to video the assault on his smartphone after the three men shouted insults at him and his companion. He suffered bruises and minor injuries in the attack. “Honestly, I’m a little surprised a thing like this could happen,” he said in a separate interview with Israeli television. The incident is the latest in a series of violent anti-Semitic attacks which are causing growing concern in Germany. Angela Merkel described it as a “horrific incident” and vowed that the German authorities would respond with “full force and resolve”. Mr Armoush said he would not allow the assault to stop him wearing a skullcap. “I’ll keep the kippah, no matter what others think,” he said.
