What are you guys getting for fuel mileage? I am getting around 11 driving around town, 15-18 driving down the highway at 70mph and 13 towing 18,000-20,000lbs at 70mph. Is that good and if not how can i get a little better? I have to drive 600 miles to home from college need the most out of my dollar.
A light foot is the most important thing, my dad's 2000 7.3 gets about 15 around town and 18 on the highway...keep your chip/tuner/box whatever you want to call it on the econo position and take it easy and that should help so...I am in the same boat you are with the college student budget.:vomit: Going out and spending $400 dollars trying to save $150 in fuel does make a lot of sense to me, so work with what ya got, which is a lot, and you will be fine.
