Hello everyone

Hello, I'm new to the site and to the powerstroke world. I bought an '08 F-350 a few months ago and so far love it. I know its a big truck and shouldn't complain much, but is there anything that can easily be done to increase the fuel mileage? I also have a '03 duramax and get twice the fuel mileage out of it. Thanks for you time

any 03 diesel is going to get twice the mileage.....2007 the EPA introduced a new pile of regulations for diesel motors,,,,from full size Semi's to the family pickup truck......these new emissions have pretty much killed fuel mileage....

but beyond that, the 6.4 is just a naturally thirsty engine... even when you do the deletes.

but that's the best thing you can do for the truck's fuel efficiency and longevity
