SRW vs DRW fuel Economy 4.10s

I am wondering what kind of millage I'm going to get if I go to a DRW flatbed. Ive got a line on a complete swap. I am going to be using this truck for farm related work. Im hoping that you guys are going to tell me the 17s. I currently don't know what kind of milage it gets because its a project. It was owned by a logger that abused it a little cosmetically. I would also like to know what your getting in your SRW with 4.10. My plans included 4" stacks and a TS chip.

Ok so it sounds like close to the same. A friend is trying to talk me out of going to a flatbed, but I'm wanting to do it anyways. Whats funny though is that my 96 with a lift kit gets 15 too.

I have a SRW with 4.10s. I get anywhere from 13.9 to 22mpg depending on how/where I'm driving. I'm also thinking of a flatbed, I doubt mileage would change much.

I have a 2WD dually CCLB 4.10s E4OD, and I get as high as 19, usually between 17 or 18, and in the 9-11 range when towing my 10k car trailer. I has an intake, exhaust, and a Chip tuned by Cary.

First I used a GPS to figure the % that my speedo was off. Turns out it was 13.33% off. So my math is OD*1.(% off)=Miles Traveled/gallons to top off. The way I estimated the % is that my Speedo reads 52 when the GPS reads 60(And the GPS I was using is my Garmin Montana 600 that has a 3ft accuracy) So I divide 52 by 60 which gives me .866666 that I then subtract from 1.0 which gives me 13.33%. The reason I multiply the OD distance by 1.1333 is so I don't have to comeback and add if anybody doesn't get that.
