You could ride the bus... Seriously, though, I'm not sure about the 7.3, but someone should be along shortly to help you out. Oh, and to the org!

The best thing you can do is keep your foot out of the pedal. I just got back from florida and averaged 20mpg highway. City I get about 14 so you are in the ball park as to what kind of mileage you are going to expect. I have 5" stacks and an intake and 6pos chip. If I get on the pedal hard, I will get about 8 mpg.
