Thanks for the input about this engine. I currently am running an old 97, F350 crewcab pickup with the 7.3PS. It has 331,00 miles on it, and still runs good. It is so big, it crowds our driveway, so, I thought about downsizing to the smaller F250 regular cab when I saw it for sale the other day.
I have had 12 of the 7.3 powered pickups over the years, but have no experience with the Ford gas engines. With the low fuel economy mentioned, and the other potential problems, I think i might stick with a diesel.
now, if I can just find an old 7.3PS "work truck" in a regular cab/long bed setup. do not see many of them around.
