Nice truck. My 94 turbo idi 7.3 gets 8-13 mpg depending on load. It seems to hover around the 10 mpg with combined driving. Seeing your posts makes me feel better knowing not every Power Smoker out there is getting 22 mpg. Even though my truck is an old school 7.3, it pulls like a mad dog. It's good enough for me, I don't have the coin to buy a new truck.

Damn nice truck, I have read nothing but good about the spartan tuners on the 6.4, seen a few put down over 500rwhp. The noise level on the 6.4 is amazing, you can't even hear them running next to mine...hard to believe its a diesel when it is running at idle. As you found out, the worst part is the mileage...but that tuner and DPF delete should really help out.

On my 6.0, I can get around 18mpg if I keep it around 60-65 on the highway....that is with 3.73 gears and 38's. City driving is around 13 if I take it easy (which I rarely do). Pulling a trailer kills it though, last weekend I averaged 8.9 mpg's pulling my 24' flatbed with 2 quads and my RZR on it (total weight probably 5-6000lbs), which really sucks for a diesel IMO. Hopefully a set of 4.30's or 4.56's will help that out.

My 08 F350 4x4 dually w/4.10's gets an average 11.6. It is a noticeable difference from my old 85 6.9 getting 15. But it is a pulling machine! It drives the same loaded or unloaded.

Milage is my only complaint about the truck.

don't plan on getting in the upper teens as far as mileage. a stock 4x2 f250 with a 6.4 barely gets 9-10. and as far as that programmer, don't plan on getting any warranty work being done on the drive train. i worked at a ford dealer, and we had a 6.4 f350 with a different tip on the exhaust and had to decline the warranty work. so just don't break anything and expect it to be covered under warranty.
