Quick mileage question

Does 400-440 miles from completley full to fuel light being on in a 99 250 4x4 auto sound about right? My mods are: (as far as MPG's are concerned)
5" straight pipe
DIY intake

Trucks on 285 mud tires.

Thanks

Re: Quick mileage question

Sounds about right..maybe a lil more. That pretty good since you don't have a chip. I don't exactly baby mine and the most I've goten is 420 to a tank full. And that was all highway with the cruise set at 65.

What all do you have on it? My 06 see 450ish miles per tank consistantly. Even when it was stock it would get about 380-390

Re: Quick mileage question

need to know how many gallons you put in....

i have seen just shy if not at 700 miles out of a tank, i know when i hit the fuel station i put in 35 or 36 gallons... supposed to be a 38 gallon tank, luckily i had an extra 10 gallons in the tool box.

that was a straight over night drive from ohio to NH, cruse around 55-60, stopped 1 maybe 2 times for a few min, had some used motor oil in with the diesel, straight pipe, DIY tymar, 10K, usually averaged 20-22 mpg hand calculated.

2002 F350 extended cab XLT, 4x4 auto,194K mi @ 10/25/13, ELF7405, DP F5, ultra light gauges, all kinds of "improvements" Yukon Grizzly locker 6K helper springs, x code fronts. 2 Y2K jetta Tdi. RC2 tuned
