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)

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.
