Re: Powerstroke Longevity???
The company I work part time fleets E350 vans with the PSD. The oldest one is a 95 and the newest is 2000. The 95 has 1.3mil mi. on it and is slowly losing one cylinder. The rest(20) have between 650k and 750k. A few transmissions, some accessory engine parts but not one of them has had an engine pulled yet. The mechanics who service them along with a lot of big buses really don't take that good of care although the oil is changed properly. So, I guess you could say that you can get almost as many highway miles as you want. dual oil filters, coolant filters and upgraded air filtration would probably get you there. Works for gassers too though not as many miles. I think you should use some lube additive as the fuel ain't what it used to be.
