    I've got an 05 F-350 and get 13mpg+/- around town, 16+/- hwy and have gotten as low as 9.5 towing a 4 place enclosed sled trailer doing 80-85mph. These are all honest numbers and keep in mind that I am the poster child for non conservative driving.:D :D :D

    A guy I work with has a 6.0 - 2005 He just did (no load ) 1700 mile trip.
    He said he gets almost 17 in town and averaged 22 on the long highway run.

    2WD or 4 WD? What is the axel ratio? What is his driving tendency?

    These are all things to ask before you consider those averages as fact.

    17 in town and averaged 22 on the long highway run.

    That would be :
    Burgundy color - extended cab - long bed - 4X4 -- 3.73 axle
    He tows a big boat or double jet ski trailer all the time.
    He does roofing on the side and carries 5 big containers of tools and supplies when in town.
