    Well I got 351W EFI for 93 F350.

    Since I heard some claim it 1 mpg to 23 mpg.

    So I would like know what normal mpg you get. For me I bet 10-12 for 1 ton regular cab with C6 3 speed with gear ratio 3.55

    Is there any power different from V8 5.4L

    I notice when drive 97 F250 HD 351W with 4.10 it seem it have more power than 01 F250 v8 5.4L with 4.10

    About the same as a newer V-10. My Father had a '92 with a 351.

    10-10-10-10........10 uphill, 10 downhill, 10 loaded and 10 unloaded....lol

    I have a 96 F 350 with a 351W, 4.10 gears and an E4OD tranny, and the best it ever did was about 8mpg. Needless to say that truck has undergone a recent heart transplant and is now diesel and gets 18MPG

    I have one like this with the 351W and I would say 8 at the most and plowing the thing is a gas hog.

    The 1989 Big Red Drain has the c-6 / 351. It gets 10 mpg in the city and gallons to the hour plowing.
