I am intrested in a 05 or 06 Powerstroke with crew cab, 4 x 4, and single wheel axel. Currently I drive a Duramax. MPG is an important factor. Could you all with simular rigs post your MPG. Please let me know empty and towing MPG - with what your towing-. Thank you

I think 6.0's and 6.6's are pretty comparable in mpg's from what i've read. I would say unless you want the better looking and larger truck, keep the d-max.

To give you some real #'s I can do that, however I have the "less efficent" 7.3 which I generally average 17mpg mostly city/secondary roads.

Remember the Ford weighs a bit more then both chevy and dodge trucks. This gives them a disadvantage as far as mpg goes, however they get similar reviews in the mpg area. 16-20 empty depending upon driving habits/locations and 9-14 towing once again depending upon driving habits/locations and weights. I think the lowest I've seen recorded was 8mpg grossing 22,200lbs in a 2005 F350 dually.

Hello: I belong to our local Elks and we have a club called the RV Romers. There is about every kind of rig you can find, I would say stock that the gm built gets a bit better then Ford or Dodge, however - if your willing to put some money into your rig, you can improve your mpg and power. If you get the 4x4 mod your gear ratio is going to change what you get, it will lower your mpg, but will out pull the 2by. But like you have been told, if you have big feet your mpg will suck. Good luck I hope this helps. Mike
