I have been searching and searching for something to tell me what to do.
I have an 09 F-350 SRW 6.4L crew cab 4x4 cabela's edition. I think it has the 4.10 gears in it (it came with the 20" rims so its a 3.73 ratio).
I get horrible fuel mileage and I can totally feel a 6000lb v-nose enclosed trailer behind me, I would almost say it feels like a gas truck
Running empty I am at best getting 15mpg and pulling my trailer I'm seeing at worst 8mpg.
I will be bringing my truck back to get it checked out for its absolutely horride fuel mileage (a combined 22L/100km for the past 10,000km and thats mostly empty highway running at 110-120km/hr). I am at 33,000km and fully stock.
I wanted the forums opinion tho, should I:
1. Kill my warrenty and go for the dpf delete with a chip.
2. Man up the extra coin and buy a '11 with the same options.
I am able to get away with not a huuuge loss by selling private. It would be about a 10-15% increase in order to upgrade.
Anyone that has/had the dpf delete and chip able to chime in? or even better someone that had the chip and moved up to a '11?
Thanks so much guys.
