Welcome to the site. That mileage is realistic dependant on the way the truck is driven (city vs. hiway, hotrodding or granny style driving, etc)

Do 7.3's guzzle a little more. Im looking for a nice work truck with some torque but also want something better then my 10mpg right now and 8mpg plowing. I was looking at doges for a long time now and I am pretty familiar with the cummins but its so hard to find ones that are loaded. Also are 6.0 gear driven engines like the cummins or does it have a timing chain?
