i do get 18 mpg empty at 75 wind or not down the interstate. and yes i love the good ole 7.3 but the new 6.7's are looking really good !! my brother in law bought a new one and uncorked it with tuner. he's getting 22 mpg empty and 18 towing according to the dash. i pencil mine out using the odometer. ( towing a 40 foot flatbed with a corn head on it at 65 mph)

i hear ya and no magic bullet just to much back pressure and engines are basically air pumps so the better the pump the better he efficiency and lower egt's. i turned mine up 100 hp and gained 4 mpg with supporting mods.

I saw a piece on ABC news where they found gas in Oklahoma for under $2.00 but diesel was still selling for $3.49. Why the disparity?

22 hwy I could believe all day (heck mine was getting 20 bone stock b4 I lifted it and stuff)

18 Towing what?.. I know with my rv trailer if I ever saw better than 15 hwy at 65mph id question my own sanity...flatbed or boat it'll do 16-17 all day...

for you 6.7 fans out there, you may want to keep an eye on your radiator for leaks. Google the problem and do some homework.

funny you should mention that...

Noticed on a few days last week a small, < 6" diameter wet spot on the ground under the left corner of front bumper... Looked it up on the ford forums, several people with same wet spot..
Luckily I have the Ford ESP so it will be covered, apparently it is a $1800 repair at dealer or buy your own rad for around $1K and do it yourself.

Thanks for the heads up!
