excursion v10 mpg

anybody have an excursion v10 in the fleet and want to share their gas mileage? were thinking about gettin my mother one since she killed her tahoe..again.. i was thinkin about getting her a 7.3 but she wouldnt like that. we were looking at 08 explorers, and 08 expeditions and the mileage isnt that great and we figured why not pick up an EX for less $

really you would be a rolling gas pump if she is going to drive it around town and everything. I have a 7.3 and before I cut the exhaust it was not bad at all. Very quiet. They don't post up the mpg because I would think it would be GPM lol. MY 7.3 is right at 15 all day/night long even towing until I got to the rockies were I climbed at 65 with my jeep and got 12.

lol its my mother. she doesnt want a 7.3 cause of the noise, and the fact shes gotta pump diesel into it, and her cars get beat up for whatever reason so well stick with a cheap one to fix, even though most 7.3s dont need no fixin! lol

I drove a 2007 F250 V10 that was short bed, extended cab with a cap on it so it is pretty comparable - I got no better than 9.95 mpg average over 100,000 miles tracked. The truck had 4.30 gears and carried some weight - so an ex should expect no more than 12-13 if life was good. I can't average over 12 with the hemi I drive now, gas is just awful.

I say all that but... if your mom doesn't drive a whole lot, it would take a long time to recoup the money saved. I see v10 ex around here for the 10,000 buck range! They have a lot of power and seem super reliable. Mine had zero issues, I mean zero in the 120,000 miles I had it. I always dream of buying a v10 one and selling the motor out of it and installing a 4BT... any how...

Good luck -
Scott
Here is mine - no wonder I got the MPG I did!
