2002 psd crew cab short box srw. 17-20 mpg non towing @ 70 -75mph. 11-13.5 mpg towing 9000# boat @ 70 -75 mph. real numbers, I have the 3.73 gears and 2500 miles on the truck. Rumor has it that mileage improves after 10,000 miles, but that will take me 3 years to find out.

2002 Ford PSD, Dually, 4 x 4, Crew Cab, 4.10 Rear End, Long Bed

I got 14mpg going to Florida running 75-80 - no boat.

I get @ 10mpg towing my Cafe Racer (9000# dry, so with trailer & fuel it's somewhere around 12000).

Im not sure how you guys are getting that kind of mileage

1997 crew cab F-250 short bed 4x4 w/ 4:10 gears
K&N Filter w/ 4" exhaust and with 65hp chip

13- 14 mpg tank to tank not towing
8-9 mpg towing my 29 Outlaw @75 mph
7-8 mpg at best towing my 38 Cig @75 mph

But what everyone has overlooked is durability

I have 202,000 miles on this truck and she runs like NEW with probably 75,000 of that towing

You wont get a gas job to last like that !!!!!!!
