Hello from Houston!

I recently purchased a '10 F350, Super Crew FX4 Dually, has a 6.4 diesel, to pull a 5th wheel. We took a road trip, without any load, only to find out we're only getting 11 MPG, I cannot imagine what we would get if we were to pull a 5th wheel.... Any suggestions would be appreciative.

Thanks,
Lawrence

WOW...11mpg's ? Ya thats a bit rough. I have heard tin the past on here that the 6.4 is not a mileage getter but that seems to be a understatement is 11 is the norm. Id suggest go into the 6.4 section and start reading.
