    Understand that I did not purchase this truck for gas mileage but what kind of MPG are others getting?My 1994 2500 4wd V-10 W/ 155K would easily get 15+ Hiway.My new to me 2003 2500 4WD V-10 has not gotten 10MPG. New & improved huh?

    Is that using the trip computer or did you figure it out your self?

    The trip computers are not always that accurate.

    V-10's and gas mileage should not be used in the same sentence. :nono:

    Trip computer

    Checked mileage manually,came with-in 2 tenths of trip computer. My tires look taller than other 2500 that I have seen. Thinking that trip computer & speedometer share input signal so may have to install a calibration module inline with speed sensor to compensate for tire size.

    every V10 i have seen, driven or talked to the owner is between 10-15 mpg.. You put something behind it or add weight to the truck it will drop.

    The dealership can re-calibrate it for you. I've had them do my 2005 twice since new due to different tire sizes.
