Re: 2004 6.0 fuel capacity


If you were that low and only put 34 gal. in I would guess that you filled it until the pump clicked off. I know I can put 4+ gal. in after the pump clicks off and I fill it right up to the gas (I mean diesel) cap. If that is the case man you were on fumes dude [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/warmsmile.gif[/img]

Re: 2004 6.0 fuel capacity

I got 18.5 mpg on my first tankful, and 17 on the next. I purosely drove the truck hard (no load) to see what the impact would be. I put a set of 35's on it, the mpg dropped to 15.5. Hopefully it will get better as I approach the magic 10K mark. I also plan on re-gearing to a 4.10. I can't understand why Ford won't allow you to order a srw F-350 with that gear, when you can get it on the dually's.

Well the 4.10 won't help mpg any. Did you recal the odo after putting the tires on?
