7.3l Mpg?

What type of MPG are you 99+ 7.3 guys pulling?
Truck configuration?
Tire size?

tried to search but that was a little confusing.

Lets see I have a 01 F350 4 inch lift w/35x12.5's and get about 16-17MPG at 70-75 mph. If I keep it about 65-70mph I get about 18-19. In town avg is about 14mpg. Hope that helps. Towing about 8500lbs at 65-70 I get 13-14mpg.

how accurate are your readings... with the larger tires n such? i got my eyes on a 01 7.3 crew rolling on 35.12.50R16.5s with a front level kit. Id LOVE to get the mileage youre getting unloaded.

Pretty darn dead on. I drive my truck home 380 miles each way every two weeks, so I get to check my mileage alot. My speedometer is off about 2 mph at 65. So odometer might show 130 miles, when I have actually traveled 134. Just bought my truck about 3 months ago with 110k miles on it, so was also curious about my mileage since I have a lift and bigger tires. Better mileage than any gas truck I have owned, especially when towing. Diesel power really shines then.

I get anywhere fro 14 to 20 mpg. I average about 15-16mpg. I've only got 20 once and that was driving on I-70 in Maryland letting the truck coast down those long steep grades.
