No mods and I drive it with no regard as to the mileage I get. 14 hwy. If I drive real careful I can get 15, so what's the point? I just enjoy it!
Ditto - tho I usually hold the speed down a little - try to stay at the posted speed.
Best empty (sig truck) was about 15, worst about 8 towing 14K trailer in hilly country. I tire easily any more of the mpg discussions as there are so many variables.....terrain, load, driver style, wind conditions, fuel (ethanol %, winter blend, etc); without knowing all, how can one definitely state who gets the best mileage????

I just got home with my "new to me" 2004 SD and was pleasantly surprised with the MPG. I was hoping for 14, but on flat driving in Nevada, it got 15.4 and really trying to save gas, going from Boomtown, Nev to Yuba City, Ca it got an astounding 16.7. Here's my specs:
2004
Crew cab/ shortbed
76,000 miles
auto trans
unknown gears (I'll check later and edit but FWIW RPM's are roughly 1700 @ 65mph)
285 tires on 17" rims
bed cap
all stock

~10,000 miles clocked to date
'09 F-350
  • Single rear wheel
  • Crew cab
  • 4x4
  • Short box
  • 4.10
  • Automatic
  • LT275/65Rx20E
  • No performance mods

I average ~13.5 running 75 - 80 MPH. Dropping to 65 - 70 adds a solid 1 MPG...bring me up to ~14.5 MPG. As I like to pedal on down the road, I generally tend to run about five over the speed limit....which makes it hard to see where I quit gaining fuel economy on the highway.

Angry MPG V10 2010

2010 F250 extcab 4x4 8" No bed cover, 250# tool box on bed.

I have 3300 total miles on this truck NO mods. Made a 1000 mile trip and a 400 mile trip @70mph on flat terrain. Only getting 12mpg empty.
In town and on farm I'm getting 10 mpg. Not happy and hoping MPG gets better after 5,000 miles

I get around 13mpg at 60mph on the highway. My computer is consistently about 0.5mpg more than my hand calcs, so I factored that in when I voted. My truck has ranged from 12-15mpg on various trips, but I average probably 13 overall.

The one time I ran through a full tank running down the highway included going over a mountain pass and I had the cruise set at 75mph for most of the trip. Averaged 12.5 mpg (hand calc'ed)

I also got 16+ from Donner to Roseville. Gotta love those downhill runs. I also ran the Neveva section of 80 Sparks to Well and averaged 14+. I was happy with the MPG's.

BareBones is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
Duke, most of these posts involve 2-valve V10's. The 2005+ 3-valve V10's are probably more efficient, but have more horsepower, and the chassis is heavier. The net result pretty much seems to be that the 2-valvers get better mpg.

I get what you get, and even worse in the winter, but the power is just incredible!
