Cool to buy or not to buy 06 powerstroke??

I am looking at an 06 f-350. low miles at 67,000. It is my first PS and looking to do a lot of hi-way miles but not towing. Looking to find some mileage info for non towing. Anyone have any info? Is this a good option for a rig i will put 30-50,000 annually? Thanks for any assistance.

The auto tranny on that truck is about bulletproof, so it doesn't matter if it is an auto or manual.

If you want some extra mileage, get a SCT Xcal3 tuner and a custom tune for mileage. It will also make the truck a little nicer to drive too. Not to mention, probably extent the life of that auto transmission..
