Currently I own a 2009 F-350 DRW Diesel CC and am very happy with it other than the mileage, I knew it would not do real well but expected at least 15 or so MPG currently get 10 or so on a good day and am seriously considering trading in on a 2012 DRW model

Would you 2011-12 F350/450 DRW Diesel owners give me an Honest MPG figure on your rigs please. I know there are a number of factors envolved driving habits, etc. but would appreciate any input

Thank You

BTW: That 10 MPG is Empty, carrying the camper get around 8 MPG

2011 F350 King Ranch dually crew cab, 4 X 4, 6.7L diesel. Right now just @ 4,000 miles on it, so really not close to being broke in. 3.73 rear axle ratio (I think all F350 are this ratio).

I would say on average @ 65 MPH I get 16.5 to 17.5 MPG, all depending on wind. I have gotten better at times. A 60 miles trip at night, driving at 55 MPH because its oh so thick with deer around here, it showed 20 MPG on the dash computer. All figures are empty, non-towing as I have not towed my fiver with it yet.

Mad Norsky,

Thank You, you said you had 4K on it mine has 15K are you saying that they improve with miles driven ? Never owned a diesel before this one so really have no knowledge of engine performance over time.


Thanks Again

Mixture of interstate, two lane and dirt road driving. Best mileage was 14.8 mpg, and worst was 12.0 mpg.

I have not seen a huge gain on any of the 4 previous diesels I owned. Some yes, but gosh, memory says at most 1 or 2 MPG's.

Others claim more as the mileage goes up, but I just have not had that happen to any extreme.

2011 F450 w/ 4.33 rear end. Roughly 15k miles on the odometer.

As high as 18 pure freeway unloaded. 13 - 15 around town depending on how much lead in my shoe and anywhere from 8 to 11 towing 5ver in sig.
