i read this and realize how cool my v10 really is!

the realistic mpg claims aint that good!
they are better than my v10, but not by as much as i expected.

the phony ones are so outlandish they are not even funny!
in case you did not realize, you take the number of miles driven, and divide by the gallons of fuel used, thats how you figure your mpgs.
addition and multiplication are not normally used in this process!

the price of the truck, the price of the fuel, and the price of repairs and maintenance make it a poor choice in michigan.

if i lived at 10k ft i could understand it(barley).
if i towed 50k miles per year i could understand it.

otherwise, near sea level, in "normal service" it just seems like a poor investment.

I drive my 6.0 pretty hard. Never had any issues. Fucked up my trans though.

No stock 7.3 will ever see 20.
And your saying a stock truck will ( but it won't) and your telling me I don't get 20... I do not use my overhead. Never have. Distance dev by gallons.... It's not fuckin rocket science.

Quoted for troof. Too many people DD these and don't work them enough.
I'm not a mechanic by any means and i've done all the work to my 6.0 except headstuds. Basic knowledge with basic tools and some time and you can keep them running just fine.

Only the guys, eh?
That would be because us girls think before we type and we do know how to do math and our spelling isn't atrocious, either.

I asked a bunch of engineers and other Ford diesel people at work about all this. They told me to stop driving like a conservative, fuel-saving, female.

So, I followed their instructions and think I am seeing a difference in performance. I haven't experienced that hesitation at take-off or smoke-puffing, or using a 1/2 tank of fuel in 3 days.

TLDR
I have a F350 7.3L. When I push on the skinny pedal the engine makes noise and the truck goes down the road along with whatever is attached to it and when it runs out of fuel I put more in.
