You must have a heavy or erratic driving style, it wouldn't take much to have the gas gage heading south.

I'll see 7.5mpg pulling the 5th wheel and thats 21k + pounds combined truck and trailer.

5.6-7 in the city. Stop and go.

On that trip. If I went to 70mph or anywhere over 2000rpm. The mpg dropped quick !

I do have the 4:10 gears.

The 4.10s should actually help in the city. Get ya off the line a little easier.

Anything less than 10 mpg makes me cringe just thinking about it! I can see my gas gauge drop with every trip to town with 10 mpgs...

Dogmann, your trucks mpgs are clearly making you unhappy. I think you'd be making the right move to sell. However your only option for better mpgs in a truck would be a diesel or half ton pickup.

If you purchased a more expensive truck (assuming) for mpgs would you actually save money vs driving the lower mpg V10? Depending on what you paid and how much, if any, you owe.

MDSuperDuty hit the nail on the head. Once I enter into a "I hate this vehicle/I need a new one" state of mind, its hard to shake it. I almost always end up trading it off at that point. If the truck makes you as unhappy as you say, I also vote for getting rid of it.

Look at it this way: if your making $300 payments now and getting 7 mpg, youd be further ahead making $500 and getting 14 mpg (depending on how far you drive also). Heck, at 7 mpg, Id be willing to bet you could swallow a $700 payment on a new/newer truck and get 18-20 mpg. Of course I have no idea what scenario your in now but its a good way to look at it.

If the trucks paid off, almost any car payment at all would be more than fuel cost (at least in my shoes)

But like I said, everyones scenario is different. You may have a $100 truck payment and my calculations are way off

I'm full timing in the 5th wheel. The last weighing was August @ 13K + and I'm sure a little more has been added. The '08' was @ 7,880# +/-.

Well I have been hand calculating my mileage since getting g my v10, with 315/75/16 open country's (on the truck when.i bought it ) and a manual transmission, super cab , short box and 4x4 , I am getting consistently 14 mpg.
All of my driving is hiway, and these roads change in elevation from 500 feet to 2000 feet.
And as far as I know , it does still have 3:73 ls.

I have an 02 F250. I get about 11 in the city and 13 on highway. On long trips I use the SCT programmer in ECONOMY and can get 15-17 on highway at 70mph (I hate going that slow(
