My average is around 16-17mpg of diesel FUEL. There, I did it! And yes, there are lots of people on this forum who have that odd combination of 7.3L engine and pickup truck. If you're looking for info, you are in the right place! Welcome to powerstroke.org!

Don't mean to bust your chops too much, all in fun!
My truck is a 2003 7.3L with auto trans. I have heard that the best way to good mpg is keep the foot off the throttle, keep the revs low. Good luck with that!
