I had an 02 F350 srw psd 4x4 crew with the same 7.3L auto with 3.73 gears, and I got around 22 mpg highway, 19 mpg city. This was with a 4" lift and 35" x 12" wide tires. The only other add-ons were a tonneu cover and a Superchips module set to max hp setting. (I'm such an idiot for getting rid of that truck and getting the 6.0L)

Were you going by the digital display, or hand calculated?

So I'm not the only one with a big 7.3 that's getting sweet (for a big truck) mileage.

I didn't believe the display at first so I did hand calculated for several tanks and it was true.

idk, maybe it had something to do with the truck being built for sale in canada or something, who knows. I bought it used off of ebay with 9500 miles on it. I didn't do the superchips until around 20000 at the same time as the lift and tires. Before I was getting 16 hw, 14 city. I didn't pamper the throttle all the time it but I didn't run it real hard either.
