What kind of fuel milage do you get with your 7.3? What mods do you have? City and Hwy? I get about 10-12 city, and 18 is the best I got on the hwy. I heard of some people getting 25 hwy? anybody else?

I get about 13 city and I am anything but easy on her, I hate traffic. I can't remember what I got on the interstate for sure but I think it was about 19 which isn't bad if you consider I usually run 90 and up on the big roads. I bought my 99 from my brother and he said I could see 15 to 16 city if I was very easy on it at all times, will probably never see that. :dunno:

thanks guys for replying . I think that it's very possible for powerstrokes to get great milage i believe it's the way you set your truck up. even the oil in the rear end and motor makes a difference I run 300+cc BI injectors and me not knowing sh*** but this is what my truck does at this time. maybe one of these days I'll get the most milage out of my truck. I'll probably get 3500+psi and leave it in 60 to 80 ecno mode I wonder what I would get for milage? oh a bunch of moly oil treatment and 8oz + of diesel service in the fuel. maybe 25 to 30 mpg we should have a milage contest, w/ the price of diesel being so high sh*** you guys would win I live on a 40 by 40 island w/ lots of hills and traffic!!!!!!!!

later

im getting 16-18 mixed driving with the truck in my sig. The best I saw was 19.2 but that was on about an 2 hour trip to a truck jamboree (cruise control on the way there, lots of wasted fuel there, cruise control back)
