Hello from central Florida

Hello, I just got into the diesel truck trend when I purchased a 07 Ford F-350 XLT Crew Cab 4x2 auto. short bed with the Lariat seats installed. The truck currently has 197,xxx miles and I'm getting around 18 MPG combined thanks to an eBay chip the previous owner installed. Looking forward to driving the wheels off this baby.

Re: Hello from central Florida


Well it’s a 2x4 so that right there is what, 400lbs lighter? I’m thinking the d60 is a heavy sob. I get 14.35mpg running SRL+ with 4.10 gears. Without the tuner 12mpg. I’m sure I can squeeze another 1mpg if I swapped to 373 gears but that’s going to cost $800-1200 - that’s a lot of fuel I could purchase. 18 is really pushing it. My 7.3 2x4 dually gets 16 all day with a 100hp php tune.
