newbie from pa w/ fuel mileage questions

Hello. Its been about 10 yes since I have had a diesel previously had 89 F350 7.3l loved all 425k miles. Now I'm in the market for another diesel as I do lots of driving both city and hwy. And need better towing capacity. Currently rocking an 01 expedition 5.4l 220k untouched motor. Other than straight exhaust. However its only rated at 8k and I have a 14k lbs boat. So my question is what avg milage can I expect from 6.0 / 6.4 / 6.7 I am aware of the 6.0 issues as a former diesel tech. But have not followed the 6.4 or 6.7 to much. I have friends running 6.0 and getting 25+ hwy mpg and friends with a 6.7 getting 8mpg. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Also I'm looking for a DRW 6speed. Thanks.

Glad to have you - to the ORG!!

If you don't mind doing some reading, go up to the black nav bar and click "Forums" - Scroll down to the various years of trucks with the engines you mentioned. Good stuff. Don't be afraid to ask questions, if don't find something you're looking for.
