Mileage vs. Engine Hours

I'm looking at a couple of '05 6.0 F-250's, one has 91,000 and the engine hours read 2,944, the second one has 94,000 and engine hours of 2303. Obviously, one has more highway miles, I'm assuming. What are your mileage vs. engine hour numbers? Trying to determine what "average engine hours" would be!

Per Ford, 1hr of idle diesel engine running = 25 miles

61k on my 06 and 1400 hours. I don't let mine idle excessively either and have a lot of highway miles.
