February 17, 2011I just bought a 2005 F350 with a 6inch lift. I heard that 6.0 got around 20mpg. My computer in my truck is telling me I am getting alittle over 10mph in town. I have yet to take it for a long trip. Should I expect a large jump in the fuel milage department or am I going to be stuck at 12 like my father`s 7.3? Any info on this would be great. Thank

February 18, 2011for a lifted 4wheel drive, figure on around 14-15 on the road, and 10-12 in town. less if you have a heavy foot.
February 22, 2011Would my EGR effect the milage?
February 23, 2011I have a 2005 F250, non lifted, stock tire size, 4 wheel drive and I get 16-18 highway, 14-16 around town. I drive it like I have to pay to repair it and the only 2 things I`ve done to it are a 4" turbo back exhaust and I use 2 stroke oil in the fuel. When I tow the fifth wheel I get 10-12 depending on the wind.
Does the noise in my head bother you?
April 18, 2011One thing to check is to make sure they recalibrated you speedometer for the larger tires. If that isn`t correct, then your mpg will be off. My 2004 dually got 11 around town, and could push about 16 on the highway (empty).
April 20, 2011I know the speedo is off my 4 to 5 mph and the odometer is off about .6 a mile for every 10 traveled. I asked the Ford dealer here in town about adjusting it but the guy told me that they can only adjust up to 33. I don`t know how true that is but its 110 dollars to get it done.
August 27, 2011I just bought an 07 and I`m getting just under 17mpg highway and its completely stock. I unplugged the egr valve and picked up nearly a mile per gallon or so the computer lie o meter says so. Gonna upgrade the intake and exhaust and see what it does. My 03 Excursion has an intake, 4 inch exhaust, Edge CTS on mileage setting and an Accufab power elbow and I`m getting over 22 with that truck.
August 27, 2011Yeah I have added the Edge Juice with Attitude CTS and I getting around 18 on the highway in Level 3. I found I get better mileage in level 3 so to my cuzin and another in thier excursions. I am still waiting to see if the edge 3.0 update changes the mileage.
