New to Forum... 2002 F250

Hey folks, new to this forum, looks like a great place to learn.

Just got a 2002 Supercab 250.... 99K miles

Picked it up at a farm auction and it has cleaned up really well.

Had the tranny flushed and filled with Amsoil, updated the other fluids as well to full synthetics.

It needed a rear ujoint right away, which seemed to be the third ujoint in the vehicle, seeing it was not a factory ujoint.

I will be using it for pulling around my tractor, hauling wood and for the many summer road trips that need a variety of gear for. So.... that means that power is important, but I want to see how high I can get the MPG up to...

4" MBRP Exhaust
AFE Stage 2
TS 6-position Chip
285's, Brute II AG tow bumber
Amsoil Full Synthetic Trans, Engine, Diff Fluids,
Amsoil Ea oil Filter
Goal is to build Mileage gains and power...

Clean slate for performance mods...Looking to put on the most efficient and best performing pieces.

Next Step is the Propane.

Welcome! If you want more mpg's try opening up the intake and exhaust and getting a chip, and drive lightly if you can after you get the added power!

Welcome!! I also have an 02. I upgraded intake, went 4" turbo back, and added a TS 6position chip. Did some pretty thorough fuel mileage checks with and without trailer. If you can control the right foot, you should see an increase of 2ish mpg. I saw a little better than 2 a couple times and less a couple times. So I think 2 is about the norm. Here lately tho, I have dropped mpg considerably, but I get where Im going a whole lot quicker!!!(heavy foot disease!) Congrats on the truck. Look around this site, I think youll like the info, the people, And the atmosphere. We just got voted the #1 diesel site. Didnt happen by mistake!!
