Well keep in mind ours has a 3.30 axle ratio which is a little high for this truck. pulling a trailer empty 12.3. With 4,000 lbs on 7.6. Pathetic. just motoring to town 13.7 but the truck has a lot of power.

That seems quite poor. My 97 cummins tows heavy trailers and gets that mileage. 15mpg 8000lbs+ heavy.

The biggest pain with new diesels to me is the EPA equipment hindering mileage. Plus you have to put diesel exhaust fluid in which costs money itself.

Its so damn stupid because with gas jobs they want to squeeze every bit of mileage they can but with diesels it seems like they want them to consume as much fuel as possible in the name of being cleaner?!?

I have had one for 2 year, 60K miles. The worst mileage is 16.5 around town and about 14 pulling. It gets 18-20 on the highway.

That's why I'd buy the gas, cheaper to run/maintain

I have had a 6.7 for 3 years. Almost all of the mile have been towing hay trailers or my camper.
In heavy wind at 75 MPH 9 - 11 mpg. Local hay delivery with 15k 12 - 15 mpg. 900 mile trip to look at a tractor 19.7 mpg(75 mph).DEF cost is only $12 every 5,000 miles. I wouldn"t trade it for anything else out there.

My 99 f250 super duty 7.3 is worth less than the wheels on your truck and gets about the same mileage. The ford dealers are wanting me to call in for a coffee and chat, guess they think I should buy a newer truck . I'M thinking what the cost is and no better MPG i'll stay home L.O.L

You and your gas rigs. They wouldn't have a chance at towing what a diesel could. I wouldnt buy a gas rig to tow over 10,000lbs. And I definitely wouldnt buy a new Ford diesel.

Just for fun the other night I got on ford.com and priced out a new Powerstroke. Nothin fancy. Cloth seats with some creature comforts.

$56,000!

I think I'll rebuild my ol' 7.3, thank you very much!

Thats the way I see it. I dont know how anyone affords new trucks. And the price of a gas job isnt far behind it either. I priced out a decent gas 2500 it was $31000 and a barebones diesel was $41000...
Getting the diesel option put other heavy duty options on the truck.
Of course at the dealthlershit you can haggle them down so you may wind up paying $35000 for a 2500 diesel work truck or $25000 for a similar gas job...

Gas will pull as good as a diesel as long as its geared right,
gearing has more effect than gas vs diesel, I will take 4:56
gears and you can take a diesel with 3:30 gears and lets see
who wins you could even have 3:73 and I'll take the new 6.4

Don't know if I can agree with that either, worst I ever have got was 6 mpg with 25,000 pounds on a fifth wheel trailer and where I work there power strokes will get around 8-9 pulling just around 15,000 never pulled as much with one, not saying it wouldn't do it, it would, but where I work we will load it on the semi or dump truck over 20,000, and gas is quiet a bit cheaper
