01 50k miles, see sig. torque tubes on it now. I answered 15mpg, which is what I get if I baby it at 60-65mph. My friend borrowed it for a weekend and put about 1000 miles on it, and got 16. He was pretty nervous and was probably very cautious.

At 80mph, it's down to 10-11mpg.

1999 super cab 4x4 shortbed with 4" lift & 35" tires. I normally calculate about 10-11 mpg on the highway so I voted 12 mpg to account for the bigger tires making the odometer reading off by a few miles.

Ever since I got my '99 F250 CC SB 4X4 in April I have had rare opportunity to measure highway mileage since I've either been towing the camper or piddling back and forth two miles to work and back. Last week I took her on an empty road trip (2 lane road 55mph speed limit, cruise set at 63mph, 100 degrees F, A/C running on MAX) and calculated my mileage at 13.7 MPG. My '96 Tahoe I had previously would only get 14.5 on its best day. I was very happy with the mileage. It's bone stock with LT265/75/R16 tires, toneau cover, and 143,000 miles.

Arrow Happy . . .

My on board dash computer says I get 18.3 MPG running on the hwy for 100+ mile drives, all on cruise going 75 to 80. Use a SCT Xcal 2 w/ Street or Performance tune w/ ERG off, 4" turbo back exh, Airaid cold air intake, & Accufab Intake tube.

It shows 15.2 in city driving.

Hand cal shows something less but that includes startup, idleing, city & hyw, all together.

Hope this helps . . .

I didn't look for one, maybe there is, or maybe you should start one.

My truck is a 2000 with 4" lift and 35" tires. Only other mods are single in single out FM40 and a drop in K&N filter in the stock air box.

My F250 just got 12 driving from Colorado to California and back.

My Excursion on the other hand that is totally stock has gotten 16.7 on the same trip.
