Buying a 2000 7.3

Im getting pretty close on getting a deal on a 2000 7.3 with 151k on it. Ive owned nothing but the 5.9 cummins but i know the 7.3 is as dependable. It will be a daily driver for me. Im getting about 15 mpg on my dodge right now but its lifted on 37's. What kind of mpg's are the 7.3's getting on a stock/lifted??
