My SRW 250 for the first 500 miles is averaging 11 MPG...mainly city though. I'm really hoping it's going to get better. I know this isn't entirely germaine to the post, but just throwing it out there.

mine is used commercially 98% of the time , but in stock form 12.8 was the best ever with just the truck on a trip to Gattlinburg,TN, and with KEM I ran to Atlanta,GA last week to pick up my new trailer ,so it was just me and the truck and -- 19.8 on that little run. But loaded it is avg about 10.2 with the KEM programmer and DPF removed. ( we are in B"ham,AL)

its not going to get any better until they allow them to rermove the DPF on any new diesel, Ford ,Dodge and Chevy are all reporting MPG"S in the low teens and under. One of my drivers has an 07 Dodge and it's the same story, 8.2 Mpg loaded as mine was once upon a time , until I found KEM -- he has 38,000 miles on his Dodge and is pondering a DPF removal on it as well.

The DPF is short for Diesel Particulate Filter. Basically what it does is catches the majority of the soot particulates in your exhaust. When it gets to a certain point the truck will go into regeneration mode, which essentially gets the filter extremely hot around 1400-1600 degrees and burns off the soot particles in the filter again to eliminate them

I'm currently averaging around 13 mpg with my 2008 F350 SC Dually with 4:10 rear end. Most of my driving is unloaded and on the highway. When I hook up my 4 horse gooseneck trailer, it drops to 10mpg. Not the greatest but better than my Dodge 3500 Dually with a V10. Used to get 10mpg everyday and 7-8 when hauling a 3 horse bumper pull trailer.
