I got about 4.3 this last tank. (42's with 12" on my 05 6.0) but it was all short trips and idling. I get around 8-12 highway with 373s (too high of a gear for the tires) and my 7.3 with 8" and 38.5's would pull down 10-12 city, and 16-17 highway.

Mine is 4.10 gears. 285/75/16 tires. I get close to 17 freeway empty. Towing the jeep I get about 12. I drive it at 68 mph. That puts my rpm at 2200. I am sure that if I drove a little slower I could get better mieage.

My "New" 96 F-350 Crew Cab 4X4 5 speed is stock, I think, gets around 20 on the highway doing 70 or less. My 95 F-250 ext cab 4X4 auto gets 15- 16 no matter what. It has a 4" exhaust, and best I have seen is 21.5 but won't do it now for some reason. F-350 is stock height, f-250 has about 2 inches of rearched springs on the front.
