normally the hotter you run a diesel the better fuel mileage you will get...


As long as you keep your foot out of it!! It's easier said than done.

I was told the 250 is better on milage but the 210 keeps stock saftey paramiters in place ( what I was told) now I have 12" lift and 40s my gas milage really went down. so I am thinking of moving to the 250 for milage but not sure I wanna stress on the tranny or anything with more HP and TQ
Keep us posted on what you do I will be intrested

I was running the 210 for a while, it shifts nice but the fuel mileage is no good. The 250 and 275 shift way too hard, the 300 is not bad at all. I loaded the 300 and averaged 2mpgs better than any other tune. 80% in town 20% highway hand calculated ford Cetane booster on every tank.

I net best MPG's in the 275, but in response to your question, 250 will get better than 210. I see a full 1 mpg in 250 over 210, and 1.5-2 in 275 over 210
