I have the 99 F350 CC LWB with about 16K on it. The worst I've ever got
is about 14.5 with only around town. My normal routine is about 70% around

town and the rest on the highway and I average 16-17. Freeway driving I
get 17-20 depending mostly on the speed. I haven't towed much yet but
did get almost 18 on a trip from Las Vegas to San Jose towing a uhaul at
70-75 mph.

hey,


Ive got a F-350, CrewCab, Dully, With the powerstoke and
get about 19.7MPG, and 705 Miles-To-Empty,,,,,If you ride
without the air, keep it around 55 (dont speed) And shift
around 1800RPM`s (Manual Tran.), you may be able to save a
little gas $$$$ with this gas craze and all.
Dont go by your "MPG" on the trip computer in the overhead
console, they tend to not average up right.
Ive done no engine tweeking, or chip changing, everything
stock.
Try it for a while, wont hurt!!!!!!!!!

Adry

My 99 PSD with little over 30,000 mile on it has averaged 17.92 MPG
since new have kept a record on all fuel purchased, have towed a 7300
GVW TT about 20% of the miles.

I just had my airbox changed on my 99 Diesel Powerstroke. A few weeks
ago I bought some air filters at an excellent price. But, the new air
box has a different air filter. I have two for sale---at a good price.

If interested, please e-mail me privately. Thanks

Hello to all,
I recently got my truck and am now looking for upgrades, mainly to give me a
few more mpg's. Seems like the K&N filter would help a little bit, do i
spend the 50 dollars on that or is it worth it to go to the generation 2
entire system. What effects has everyone noticed after installing one of
these on the truck? Thanks a lot.

99 black F-150 XLT, most options, 5.4, ext cab, shrt box, ford steps, access
roll-up tonneau cover

I've got a 99 F350 ps 4x4 CC LWB 20k on it was getting 11 in town 14 on
the
hwy (if I kept my foot out of it) otherwise OH MAN. Recently with a big
snow
storm my air cleaner filled up with snow and ice and I finnaly got the
dealer to do the TSB on the air box. Funny how my latest tanks of fuel
I've
gotten 13 in the city. And those are'nt inflated figures

Ok I've watched this develop. Some of you guys claiming this milage,
want to give me some particulars. L:ike what rear end, (mines
4:10)auto?, what kind of speeds you drive to get these great mpg's. I've
got a feeling either I've got a bad truck, bad dealer/ mechanic or the
biggest lead foot on the list.

99 F 250 SC PSD 6 Spd., 3.73 rear, 14,300 miles: Average 16 - 17.5 around
town. Recently drove to Ohio, then back to North Carolina, picked up a 2200 #
trailer, then home again. Too lazy to do calcs on road, saved gas receipts,
added em up.

Final answer: 22.3 average for trip. No, not a slowpoke either, 70 - 80 MPH
most of the time, including towing. Cruise control on 95% of time.

On a prior trip I drove to just south of Orlando. Cruise control whole way
75 MPH. Nevre shut off truck, just hooked on to a backhoe trailer (empty)
weighing 7500#'s, and hit resume for the ride back. 17.8 average for that
trip, again, calculated end of trip.

All in all, I figure you should get a little better than the 11 - 14 your
seeing. Our F350 flatbeds, PSD, 6 Spd., get that, and better, around town....

Main difference will probably be that you have a 3.73 as opposed to the
F350's having 4.10's

20 mpgs summer and 16 winter. I don't tow and I don't plow snow. Additional
weight is
due to a Weather Guard cross box (aluminum tool box) mounted over rails.

My rig is a 99.5, Super Cab, Auto, 4X4 Off Road, 3.73LS, widest stock tires.
Being a 99.5 is important to mention, because there are no CATs, two inches
lower
in rear (less drag?), a redesigned smaller turbo unit and airbox system (less
power?).

I drive mostly country roads. Average speed: 60-65 mph. Air pressure 55 psi all
around. And not exceptionally hard on accelerator petal - only when I need to
be.

When new, spring through late fall, my mileage steadily climbed to about 20
mpgs.
But came winter and "winterized" fuel, and it plummeted to 16 mpg Usage of 4X4
was a contributor - but not big, since little ice/snow this year. Also, ran
with window
defrost setting on, which runs the air conditioner compressor.

My truck is not a good coaster: down hills it's as if I've released a parachute
behind me.
That's why I don't think driving with cruise control facilitates better mileage.
Every time
I go over a hill it effectively "brakes", and has to go into acceleration mode
sooner to get
back up to the set speed. At least it seems that way to me.
