Stock with 4.10 gears I average around 15 mpg mixed driving, no trailer. With my 20ft enclosed I was getting approx 10 mpg and with the 16 ft utility trailer approx 12mpg. Just did the zoodad mod and don't know if that will make any difference. When I had my '95 F250 Super Cab w/ 460 gasser If I drove real easy I got about 12mpg empty and it had 3.55 gears. When I towed with it I was afraid to know how bad the mpg was . And of course there is no comparison in performance and towing, between the two.

The 6.0 will get better mileage than the 6.4 because of all the emissions stuff on the new trucks.

Mine is a 7.3 as well. Mine on the 100hp setting of my TS will get around 13.5 with city/highway. I am getting ready to do a long haul back to Ohio from Cali and I expect that my mileage will be better when I can get it on the highway for a couple of hours at a time with the cruise control set at 65 mph. We shall see.
