New purchase help/mileage

I'm seriously considering purchasing an '02 F250 CC LWB 4x4 Auto Lariat. I was pretty excited about this truck until someone I met today with a very similiar truck told me his mileage. He told me he gets only 13-14mpg. I currently have a '99 F250 x-cab LWB 2wd 6spd that gets 19mpg. My wife needs the auto tranny because of back problems. I expected a slight mileage drop with the auto, but that much is ridiculous. Do these numbers sound correct? Any experiences with a similarly equipped truck?

the truck you are looking at should get between 15 and 19 on the hiway depending on rear end gear ratio and more importantly driving style.......

I've got the 3.73 rear end right now and I'm hoping the '02 has the same. We'll find out tomorrow.

Thanks for the help! This is a great forum!!
