stalling

hey guys,
today my 99 7.3 f-250 stalled for no apparant reason. I was coming to a stop, and it just died. my fuel guage read just above the e. It took a few minutes to start, but when it did i drove it 4 miles to a gas station thinking the guage was wrong. the truck ran very rough the entire way. I only put 23 gallons in it which tells me it wasn't empty. I then started the truck and it ran rough for about 1.5 mile and then started running like normal. I have driven twice since then and everything seems to be fine. also the truck only get 15 miles to a gallon is this normal for a 7.3 with 143,000 miles? thanks for any ideas what just happened.

the biggest thing to start with would be pulling codes. That is generally the first place to start..

Yea, what he said...

In Australia, we have even gotten a CPS go out on a brand new 7.3!!! But judging from the 90 or so Effies we have running, it is a part that should be regarded as disposable maintenance items like fan belts or radiator hoses, and you should carry a spare... Try replacing the CPS like Marc says, and if it does not fix it, you have your spare.. Ha!:burnout

Two cents worth from Oz....
