has anyone expierienced cold temps with your super duty i have the 7.3 and when i bought it i was gettn 15 solid then i put the dp tuner on and maybe 16 but since this winter hit im not sure if its the winterized diesel they sell here but i have lost about 175 miles to the tank now im gettn bout 10 but its been anywhere from 10 to 60 below zero and i was just wondering if anyone has the same issue
If your ebpv stays on it will kill the fuel mileage robbing power, Idle time plays a big role it that 2 i left one of my trucks idling one day for 10 hours when it was -20 -30 hear so i could run to town if we got in a pinch for work i burned a half tank in 12 hours

yeah there is quite a bit of idle time at least i give it 20 min to warm up when i start it then i usually leave it running if i go somewhere unless i can plug in but when i drive it actually does get up to normal temp and the heater works great better than my gas car but i drive 50 miles to work so it has pretty good run time. does anyone run the #1 heating fuel in there rig i think im gonna start because it is so much cheaper i will just ad some howes lubricant and see what the mpg is
For me, idle time depends on who's riding along. For me alone, I usually give it a minute or 2 and then just drive gently until she warms up. With the wife and kids, it's a lot more idling........
I agree, the winter fuel cuts your mileage. Just something we have to live with. Also, as Dave points out, the air is much denser than when it's warm.
