I just got into my first IDI truck and was surprised with the mpg's on my first tank. The truck is a 91 crew F350 dually 4x4 5 speed with the ATS turbo kit and 4.10 rear. I would say it was 60/40 highway/city and I got 18.5. I'm quite please being as that I rarely got that with my old 12v Cummins 4x4 truck, and that truck was a 3.55 rear end with singles in back and not a crew cab.
