Need to know what transmission, rear end gear ratio, tire size.

I only get 12-13 mpg on mine. But it has 4.10 gears with 35's and is pretty heavy.

The auto would be an E4OD which would be better for mileage.

IDI fuel mileage depends a lot on how you drive it and where you are located.
Fast starts, lot of hills and driving fast all drop the MPG.

You have to consider that mine needs a set of injectors and weighs close to
9K lbs. On the highway, I can get about 15 if I can keep it at 60 mph. I have been putting off changing the injectors, figuring that they will last until an engine swap. I don't drive it much right now, so the fuel mileage doesn't bother me.

I get 12-13, but I got a 4.10 rear end and C6 auto, so no OD. I'm not quite as heavy as some, but with my homemade bumpers, and aerodynamics worse than a brick due to my homemade frontbumper, I'm pretty impressed, especially when I say show me a 460 in my same set up that can break 10 mpg.

Well yes, that ATS will help you out big time, especially going uphill.

My truck, 7.3 n/a, dually, 4.10s, E4OD, pump turned up and advanced a bit, it gets 18mpg at 2000 rpms (60 mph) now, used to pull 20 in the summer on long trips. I do a lot of engine braking tho, and I don't let the cruise drive for me unless the road is nice and level. Under similar conditions your F250 should do about the same, if not better cause of the SRW setup and the better aerodynamics.

Geez I never do nearly as good as you guys...I've been getting 13 mpg around town...although on #2 diesel this winter I haven't been doing much better than 11 around town. Of course, my stupid intermittently dragging brakes have probably been hurting those numbers too.

I'm also getting between 12 and 13 n/a engine with a c6 and 4.10's , and it doesn't matter where I'm driving, but I don't beat on it. I just let it do it's thing.
