I know most of you would sell a car if it got that low mpg. Today we had to see a doctor 150m away 1 way. I filled both of tanks on my f250 in my signature and jumped on the hwy. Set the cruise between 60 and 70 depending on the speed limit. Filled up when we got back into town. I think 18.9 mpg is fantastic for a 6500lb,square body 4x4 truck with no overdrive.

Pretty good for an old NA 3/4 ton diesel.
Any '87 gas truck would have been lucky to see 15 mpg under the same conditions.

That's pretty good....I'm sure the distance travelled helped raise the mileage.

Also the fact that the truck didnt start out cold at 15F helps too.

It seems that in town driving kills my mpg. I'm lucky to get 13 in town.

That easily beats my 2x4 F150 with 300-6 and 2.73 gears.

Probably your truck'll do more, too.

Would you believe that I'd be lucky to get even 18mpg in my Tacoma? And the V8 Tundra owners of the same year would be lucky to see 16 LOL

I have a scangage and I get 17 mpg between my workplace and the expressway... it's about 4 miles (city).When I get on the expressway it gradually increases to around 23 mpg until I get off after 35 miles of driving.

My Marauder doesn't even get 18! Ha. The way I drive and the traffic I sit in I'm lucky to get 16. I've seen close to 22 on the highway but that was only once, usually closer to 20. And that's with 3.27's instead of the factory 3.55's.

My BMW gets 18 mpg combined on regular, while the Lexus gets 21 combined using premium.

Neither are dailies. If they were, I wouldn't own them.
