6.7 getting 18.9 mpg?

Spoke to a man yesterday. He was pulling his boat out of the water. I asked him what kind of mileage he was seeing with his truck. He told me he got 18.9 mph on the highway doing 80mph and at 65 he was getting 17.3mpg. In town he gets 14 to 16 mpg. he has 1,100 miles on it. it is a long bed extra cab XLT 4x4. I was hoping it really would get 20-25 mpg on the highway.

thats no where near broke in yet. wait till one hits about 30k or maybe 40k and theyre partly broke in then the mileage will probably go up.

I sure hope that mileage gets better, I'm not going to be happy going from my 5.9 Dodge getting 20 plus mpg to high teens. Mines been on order for 4 weeks now. My 05 ram will be for sale as soon as new truck comes in.

I am only getting an average of 15 on every fill up I've done with equal highway and city driving. I wish I could get 18. Pretty disappointed in the mpgs so far

Depending on driving, terrain, and load...on the highway I get 16.5-18 driving 70-80 foot in it, my 7.3 got 20 at an unloaded 69 mpg keeping my foot out of it (12-14 driving normal). If I was in arizona... flat, rolling at 65-70 mph, I think 20+ would be possible. Driving in town, freeway, playing a bit (okay, more than a bit) I am happy with 17, elated at 19, and anything less goes under "pay to play" . I am in rolling hills, stop and go, my 'engine hours idling, and engine hours driving' are (200 idling, 100 driving) split 50/50 with the overall average being 13.6 mpg. I am happy with it, my 7.3 was a srw F 350, 07 a 4x4 F 250, 09 a 4x4 F 250, this truck has em all beat in function, capability, and economy. The Travel Link is awesome, check fuel prices, monitor weather when traveling, avoid severe weather... these trucks are unbeatable.

Driving: 2011 Pale Adobe...F-350 CC 6.7 FX4 3:55-Locking Rear End-Dual Alternators-premium Lariat, moon rf, added wheel flares, 2-tone black base

Picked up 4/29/10 as of 06/20/2012 109,000+miles

I have 1200 miles on my crewcab short bed 4x4 and drive 70 miles per day and am getting 18 to 18.9 Worst I have seen is in very curvy mountain areas getting high 16's. This is all stats my computer is giving. I hope its accurate...lol Cause I do not want to manually calculate it and find out otherwise. I love my new truck!!!
