A couple notes with my 6.0:
1: my truck gets better mpg above 75 than it does below 70. the turbo does not really spool at those speeds, so it bogs on small inclines etc., where as above 75 the turbo is always spinning pretty quick.
2: my mpg in town is controlled more by the ambient temp/humidity and the ratio fo in town to highway driving I have done. On cold dry days, i get good mpg, on hot humid days, not so much. after several days of in town driving, my mpg will go down a little.
3. I routinely see 19mpg on the highway, and 13-14 in town. It does not matter on either whether I am alone, or have the family, the dogs, and a weeks worth of stuff filling it up. my mpg does nto change untila trailer is hooked up.
