I just purchased an 03 F250 SD
Crew Cab SB
FX4 7.3L. I'm not sure if it has a lift or if it's just the stock FX4 lift. Tires are 265 75R 16, rear end is the 3.73 limited slip. Miles are 174,000. Driving home from the lot last night, I set the cruise to 65 (the speed limit). There wasn't much traffic, so I didn't stop or slow down a lot. There were a few hills, but not many. I calculated my MPG
to be 16. Is this normal for an FX4? I was hoping for 20 MPG
(It's how I sold my wife on the purchase), my 00 F150 4x4
only gets 15. My dad has a bone stock 99 F250 2x4 and he gets 26 hwy all the time. I am looking at buying a tonneau cover and a programmer tonight in search of 20 MPG
. I checked my tire pressure this morning and it was set to 60, I filled it up to the max recommended pressure of 80.
As for as a programmer I'm looking at: EDGE Evolution II Programmer, Superchips Cortex, BANKS BIG HOSS MODULE, Hypertech Max Energy Programmer, SCT SF3 Flash Tuner, DiabloSport Predator. I'm leaning towards the SCT SF3. Any suggestions or comments?
