    2003 F350, V-10 Crew cab. - all original equip.

    Highway: 13mpg (with hard top tonneau cover installed)

    City: 7-9mpg (regardless of if you're towing a trailer or not)

    Plowing: 5mpg -

    Gas bills suck......but you'll never "over-work" a V-10!

    I would buy a V-8 if I had the choice today...just becuase of the gas. But gas was cheaper last year, and I found the right truck at the right time.

    thanks for all the info guys, plowman- exactly how i feel, much rather a v8 gas job at this point, under 2 bucks a gallon for reg unleded and diesel is still like 2.60$, so a v8 gas is just what i am looking for, just happened to come across a good deal with a V10 gas and wanted to investigate, anyway i think ill keep looking thanks again guys

    I have a 05 F-350 srw 4x4 with the 4.10 rearend. I get a consistant 11 mpg. I just filled and put 160 miles since last fill up and used 14.6 gal. It currently has a full skid (49 bags at 50lbs each) in the bed. I can't believe there is that much difference between the 05 and one a couple of yrs old. Would I buy another V-10, yes without hesitation the power is worth it.
