Dude, that thing is NOT accurate. Do what TT told you to do. Drive around and divide the miles driven by the gallons used.

Hurry. If you don't follow our advise and learn something, the stupid will consume your whole body by sunset. If that happens you will be forced to sell the Powerstroke and buy a dodge. Good luck sir.

Even my old lady's new car is 2-3 mile off, could only imagine what 11 years would do.

Fill the tank , click trip meter drive 100 miles or so. Fill tank.
Record what it took to fill. Then do the math.....bet it is not 30.
But good new is it should be better then it was.

It ( overhead lie o meter ) can give you an idea of performance gains or losses but usually isnt accurate after truck has been modded .

On the otherhand , they burn out easily so wont be a problem down the. Road....lol

I think Dave W. is barely seeing 24ish w/ 308 gears and tricked out for MPG. Could be a weird one but 24 is unlikely. I got 21 but ave 18-19 w/ my 7.3 but no matter how "gentle" i drove i could never get above the 21, which was on a road trip.
20ish could be doable for a 7.3 IMHO, tuned and running well, even w/ a mild lift. I had a 6" w/ procomp XT's and I ave 18-19 hand calculated.

Sounds like the previous owner just looked in a magazine and bought all of the overpriced stuff that came in red and black:pointlaugh:

I have had my overhead reading 99.9 mpg. Reset it at the top of a long downhill and coasted.... Hand calculated 20.3 mpg best tank ever, average 16 mpg with my daily driving(heavy foot).

Matt, You have the wrong vehicle if you really care about mileage. Go trade it in for a Prius or Jetta TDI.

For the info in the first post, how about some links to posts about the items listed.
