Yep, done a little math, MPG seems to speak for itself, although I have read some 7.3L getting as low as 13-14 MPG, and as high as 22 on highway, which may be related to the drivers right foot......
My biggest unknown concern is general operating cost and maintance @ 150+K... Tranny, turbo, diff, suspension ect... I'm sure these deisels will run forever, its the rest of the truck I'm worried about.
My fear is, a gasser with 80K, you might be able to get another 80K trouble free miles, but a diesel with 150+K, I may be doing a tranny rebuild shortly before enjoying the next 150+K miles.....
