I have an 02 350 dually 7.3 4X4 Manual with 4:10s and I only get about 14 hwy and 16 city if I drive right. I know the mileage is backwards, but with 4:10s at hwy speeds you will be sucking diesel after 60 mph

99 dually 2wd getting 17-18 highway and bout 15 round town. Loaded with 15,000 trailer mtns and desert driving over 500 mile trip avg 13 mpg. see lower profile for truck specs. I beleive the chip is a hypermax but it is real worn so I cannot read it.

I have same truck but with 6 speed and I get about the same as mtnsammy with the truck bone stock. I haven't had the DP Tuner on it long enough to know if I'm going to to gain much more than that.

My truck (see signature) is getting 17.5 mpg. This was hand calculated and approximately 2/3 of the miles driven were city. I believe I have the 4:10 rear end, but need to check it out to say for sure.
