What is your best average fuel economy???

Just curious to see which Powerstroke has had the best average fuel economy. This is purely for fun, I realize there are too many factors for this to be fair. There are also so many ways for this to be inaccurate, however this might be very interesting.

Let us know how your rig is set up and whether or not it has been deleted.

Alright... GO!

My personal best happened in 2017. bone stock 1999 f250 4x4 short bed supercab 4x4 automatic with stock 265/75r16 highway tires going 65mph for about a 4.5hr road trip got 19.3-19.5mpg round trip. Few months after that installed level kit and 285/75r16s and now my best is 17ish. BUT... adding the tonneau cover and cruising nicely on the freeway I can hit 18ish mpg on the highway only. I average 14ish with mostly city driving now though.

There is one fella Big Dave who is a pioneer with ecomodding. He has a 2000 f350 6 spd 2wd with MANY AERO MODS. custom aerocap, front air dam, gear vender overdrive, higher gears in the rear, specialized LRR tires, slight tuning mods getting 26-27mpg highway. He shows all his work on the ecomodder forum and even trucktrend magazine did an article on him.

I have duel tanks and my best has always been if I make it to the next station before I run out.

My best was 20.5mpg all highway for several hundred miles at 75mph. 2008 CC, SB, 4x4. Stock tire size and no lift. Only mods were DPF delete with DPF+R on eco tune. Needless to say, before the delete the best I could get was 14-15mpg all highway.

That's quite a jump although I'm not surprised. The hotter tunes are the way to get the best economy. What a shame all the choking pollution control equipment won't removable in the near future. The EPA is really making it difficult.

Yeah, I would love to see a trade study comparison if it really is better for the environment to burn 25% more diesel fuel with the EPA emissions in tact...compared to no emissions and burning much less fuel. I can't imagine it's any better for the environment for the refineries (huge smog polluters) to produce 25% more fuel...
