    I have a 2008 f-350 pickup with the triton gas engine. The truck has 45,000 miles on it and all I get get for gas mileage with it is 6 miles a gallon. Anyone experience this type of mileage? The dealer says there is nothing wrong with it. Any ideas?

    I just checked my old truck that my dad is now driving. It is a 99 F350 with a V10. The truck has 232K on it. The computer in the truck says 7.8 MPG.

    Is this the v8 or v10. City or highway, towing or not towing, what size gears.
    Don't trust the readout hand calculate.

    '09 f-350 v10 automatic. hubs in automatic. This storm. Plow rte is 85 miles. Topped off tank 3 times, same station same place in route, reset miles/gal each time. only weight difference was snow packed in on truck. 1st pass 3-7" snow 9.2 mpg. 2nd pass 7-10' snow 6.8 mpg. 3rd pass 6-8' snow 7.4 mpg. I have to admit that I don't worry about fuel economy while I'm plowing. If I was down to 3mpg I'd worry but big motors use a lot of fuel when they're working hard.
