new with a few questions about the 6.0

I just bought an 05 F250 and after driving it for a couple of weeks I checked my fuel milage. Far as I can tell it is all stock with only 57,000 miles. On the average all I got was 15 mpg. i would say about 75% of driving was on the freeway. (70 -75mph) Is this around normal? I was hoping it would be better. On another note I seem to be getting a vibration in the floor board around 1400 to 1800 rpm's. Transmission seems to shift fine. Any response would be helpful.

Oasis report is something that you get from your local Ford dealer and it will show everything that was done by a dealer while the truck was under warranty

15mpgs with no tuner is on the bottom end of average from what Ive seen on here. W/o my tuner i get about 16. If you want better mpgs, get a SCT tuner and run it on street. I get 20 mpgs with that setting if I set my cruise on 70. Now remember I have stock wheels and a straight pipe. But look around on here there is just a million posts about making the 6.0 make u say

70-75 is going to get you up above 2k rpm. That's a great place to make power, but not great for mileage.

Check out the calipers front and especially rear brakes can drag. If you can monitor it, check the coolant temperature fully warm. It should be 188-194. If you see less than that it's time for a new tstat
These trucks like to be driven hard, but they don't need to be driven like that all the time.
