Lifted excursion fuel mileage???

I am looking t buying an excursion and am curious what mileage to expect. It's a 01 7.3 4x4 with a 6in lift and 35in toyo open country tires. It has mbrp exhaust, a k&n intake, and a superchip. What should I expect?

Mines lifed 8.5 with 37's and the comp is showing 13.8 regularly. Thats for stock tire sizing so I'm guessing around 18 adjusted for the 37's. 5" Piped, 80hp chipped and K&N CAI.

Mine is not lifted but have 285 tires all around. On a good day, bad day 15 miles per gallon. Mine is an 03 7.3 4x4 chipped 8500 mile on new engine.

One trip to Austin I got 17.8 mile per gallon both ways.

The killer for for these big buses is 3.73 gears, 4 speed transmission and heavy. Full tank diesel (44 gallons) weighed in around 8200lbs.

Depends on how you drive it. Anywhere between 14 and 16. I have an 02 with 8" lift, 37" toyos, mbrp exhaust, K&N, superchips......Mine does closer to 12 & 14. But that is strictly in town driving. Highway, I'm sure it will do much better.

17 - 18 for me with a leveling kit and 315/75's on the PHP phoenix chip. That was highway, its closer to 14 when I'm taking the short drive to my hunting land and back. Plenty good enough economy for 35" tires in my book.
