6.4- I get about 12-14 around town, 15ish on the highway, about 9-11 hwy pulling my boat(about 5Klbs). I dont pick daisies when I drive so could probably get better.

'05 6.0 E350 mid 17's over the short time I've had it. My '03 7.3 Excursion did a best MPG of just shy of 19, with most summer time driving coming in at around 17.5, winter time in the upper 14's to 15's, towing of my 24 enclosed trailer right in at 10 to 12. My E350 shuttle bus was my tow rig, and did a best of 15MPG with most towing coming in, again, right around 10 to 12MPG.

03 F250 with 38X14.5 open country's and 4.36 gears, I'm 21 and have a tendency to floor it at 6 out of 10 green lights... Needless to say i average 10MPG. About 250-275 miles per tank. It sucks... lol

Anybody notice that most everybody gets more or less the same MPG, plus or minus a couple MPG?

Unless they make an effort to get better.

I get around 20 hwy without pulling anything. Got around 12-14 pulling close to 5,000 up the mountains in west va. But that was averaging 80 mph and 2500 rpm lol

I have no idea if there is anything special I am doing or not. I have been running Hot Shots Secret in the oil. That might be why. Other then that, not exactly sure.
