03 7.3 6spd MPGs?

what could be expected from a F350 CC long box 4x4 with the 6 speed manual?

Reason i ask it only has 12,404 miles on it and i might get it because of low miles, i don't really want a manual but would buy for the price they are asking.
I just want a ball park figure on MPG's

Thumbs down Spray on Truck bedliner

Just wondering how the spray on bed liner worked for you as a keel guard. I just bought a new 18ft cat and none of

the keel guard mfgs. said ther product would work due to the keel resting on bunks. thanks to QWIKLINER bedliners.
