I wouldnt be worried about mileage in a truck like that. If you concerned about mileage look into a regular cab 2wd for mileage.

i didn't think the words lifted or dually belonged in the same sentence as mileage

I agree... but a lot depends on the gearing and such as well... ask the p/o what they were getting and take 30% off that... thats what to expect for mileage...

My stock 4x4 dually with 4.10 gears gets 10 to 12 MPG under normal conditions, and can stretch to 14 MPG if it's all highway miles and I stay at 60-65 MPH... push it to 70-75 and it drops to 12 MPG.

My red truck, an F250 on 35's and 3.73 gears, with a stick trans, I get about 13-14 around town, taking the kids to school, etc. but that's with no correction for the larger tires, I know my speedo is off, so I'm guessing the miles is too, so it might be getting closer to 14-16 MPG. Excursion gets about 13-14 MPG, and it's stock too... but alot of around town and country back road driving, not much for interstate highways around here.
