Couple Questions

Hey guys, 1st post as Im considering picking up a really clean 94 f350 crew cab dually w/ around 60k original miles.

1. What is your avg mpg? Ive seen a couple posts in the few minutes I checked and saw around 16mpg unloaded, is this about right?

2. Ive seen a few links for some chips and the different stages you can add, Im not looking for major towing or tons of performance, just looking for something to add a little mpg and some extra hp. What kind of mpg can I look to gain by adding one of these?

Never owned a diesel but have a few at work and just wondering if its worth the additional cost of fuel. Thanks for any info.

If I knew what those abbreviations meant I could tell you, none of those were even on the sticky above.

I know! 14 years old and only 65k miles. With no turbo, is this good, bad, or no different for performance parts?

Its not bad, but a turbo would be that much better! You can put banks turbo kit on but its really pricey other then that your kinda limited for hp mods.
