Fummins mileage

I recently bought the truck advertised in this thread:

http://www.powerstroke.org/forum/tru...mins-sale.html

and have had some questions about mileage from people on and off this forum. I got around to checking it today finally. I ended up with a hand-calculated 15 mpg. Filled from same pump on the front tank only. The truck has 33" tires, I'm not sure how that affects the odometer since everything on it is custom. It may have been modified to read accurately. I checked the speedometer against a couple different police radar trailers and it's spot on. This is with city driving only, mainly to work (13 miles one way). I'm hoping with the speedometer being accurate the mileage is as well but I don't know what drives the odometer. Any insight about this? Overall I'm very happy with this truck. If the 15 mpg city is accurate I'm even more happy.

You can use a gps to verify that the mileage is correct, or you could map out your route on google maps and compare it to the odometer

The cummins I drive at work gets 15 mpg and it only goes down from there with heavy loads or heavy boots. I'd be happy with it.

Yea I really can't complain about mileage at all. Mind you, the novelty of this thing hasn't worn off yet so I do get into it occasionally when I can. If I could just driiiiiiive it around without stepping on it it would be better. I'll tell ya one thing though: Around the west suburbs of Chicago this sort of truck is a rare commodity and attracts a LOT of attention. I'm not sure if thats good or bad.

Nice truck!

I'm getting about 17 to 18 mpg in my 94 F350 Cummins with auto and 4x4, but that is with longer traveling distance with some highway, so 15 mpg in town seems in line, especially if your right foot twitches uncontrollably from time to time.

She's a little stiff but not too bad. A bit stiffer then my Jeep, but it's a truck so it doesn't really bother me.
