Fuel Mileage Info

Well I know there have been a lot of discussions in regards to the fuel mileage of the 7.3 so I went ahead and kept a spreadsheet of my mileage for an entire year. My driving is generally conservative but I definitely dig into the throttle every now and then. I drive a majority of the time unloaded but usually two nights out of the week we pull a 28' enclosed trailer with tools and our race car. My mods are in my signature. Hope you guys enjoy!

I liked your sheet, but curiousity got the best of me...I had to know what all that fuel cost you.

Also, I've seen other posts on here about the 2 stroke oil...what does that do?? Why are you adding it to the fuel?

I am too scared to add up the total fuel cost, haha!

The 2 stroke helps to add lube to the fuel and makes the job the injectors do much easier. The truck seems much more happy since I have been running it.

I just added up my fuel for the past year, $7500

Well done on the spread sheet. I don't have the discipline to follow through for a whole year with something like that.
