Re: cummins mileage true?

I had an '03 CCSB Cummins 6sp 4x4 4.10s & 35s. I got a consistent 18. My '94 Cummins 4x4 auto w 4.10s and dually got 17.

No offense to Iron but I just don't believe the low - mid 20s in a 4x4. Maybe a 2wd with 3.55 gears.

Re: cummins mileage true?

@PSRumors-I get the occasional fluke tank where it is 20 or a little above when I figure it by hand. Its usually after a thorough servicing and drops off rather quickly. I had one this past summer that was at or above, slightly, the 20mpg mark. Right now though, im getting about 12, give or take, due to fuel, idling, and cold temps.

The 18 in the chevy is prolly close. Theyre light as a half-ton. The person getting 17 outta the 02 ford must be driving really careful or isnt figuring it right. A guy I worked with traded his 04 6leaker for a 05 ctd qc/lb with a 6spd and he drives like a dewsh and gets 19mpg's. I dont know what the secret is. I drive like I have an AARP card and I get in the high teens on a lifted cc/sb.

2000 F250 4x4 cc/sb. 6" w/37's and some other stuff.

I get 12 towing 10k and above at 80 mph.

7.3 injectors are like greeters at wal mart. They are there and they do there job, but you can't ask them to do anything quickly or they will get confused and give up.

Sounds like you and I are on the very same page.

When I bought my '94 all I was hearing was mid 20s. I quickly found out they were full of crap.

This truck belonged to my grandfather. In the glove box is every reciept for fuel that was ever put in it. Starting at about 120 miles. ALL hand calculated. 18-20mpg. I got my trusty craftsman 12v flathead programmer out, and gained about 1 mpg.
