    Who has the highest mpg diesel in a pick up in the 07.5-08? Duramax, Powerstroke, or Cummins.

    Cummins
    not even close
    Cummins (Dodge) gets the best, Ford's(PSD) get the worst.
    Duramax (Chevy) in the middle but closer to Ford than Dodge.

    Mileage only, Dodge wins in a walkaway.

    i thought that the cummins got worse than the duramax? of course the 5.9 got better, but he is talking about the 6.7.

    oh, good point, I missed the 6.7 point:blush2:
    Not sure on that, havn't seen anyone with a new 6.7, i would still bet on better out of the cummins.
    The inline 6 is a better diesel design, more power with less waste (fewer moving parts, fewer bearing surfaces, easier to cool, etc)

    Well, you can't really tell now as not many of these trucks are broken in. I have an 08 and i get roughly 18 highway doing 65. Now this number will go up once i have 15-20k miles on it. I only have 1k on it now.
