    I am looking to purchase a 93 f350 reg cab in a couple of weeks. Was wondering what the gas milage on this truck would be with the 351 v8 gas engine in it.

    93 F-350

    Hi there
    I had a 93 F-350 with the 460 engine. Id say that motor
    got about 8-10 mpg, so id say the 351 engine would be around 12mpg. One word of caution on this vehicle, check the oil pan for rot. Youd think the dealers would carry oil pans in stock WRONG!...its was a nightmare trying to get one. My truck sat for two weeks waiting for this part. I think the truck is awesome to work with, and a beast for plowing, infact i bought another one 95F-350, and made sure i undercoated everything vital underneath. Good luck!

    all ford oil pans have a rotting problem,it seems like the 351 is the worst,The 351 will be lucky to get 11 mpg-my old boss ahs one,its a pig,but its a HD truck and can handle a plow great with that nice Dana 60 front end.the F350 is sprung very stiff,even with 1000 lbs of tools his still rides real hard,tough on your back.

    remember that there is a recall for the fuel tank
    sending units on that truck. Make sure that has been repaired.

    rubber seal on top of tank can rupture, and overflow when refueling.
