That seems quite poor. My 97 cummins tows heavy trailers and gets that mileage. 15mpg 8000lbs+ heavy.

The biggest pain with new diesels to me is the EPA equipment hindering mileage. Plus you have to put diesel exhaust fluid in which costs money itself.

Its so damn stupid because with gas jobs they want to squeeze every bit of mileage they can but with diesels it seems like they want them to consume as much fuel as possible in the name of being cleaner?!?

That's why I'd buy the gas, cheaper to run/maintain

You and your gas rigs. They wouldn't have a chance at towing what a diesel could. I wouldnt buy a gas rig to tow over 10,000lbs. And I definitely wouldnt buy a new Ford diesel.

Gas will pull as good as a diesel as long as its geared right, gearing has more effect than gas vs diesel, I will take 4:56 gears and you can take a diesel with 3:30 gears and lets see who wins you could even have 3:73 and I'll take the new 6.4 hemi to

In a semi you can have as many gears as you want and even aux. transmissions for more gears. Look at some of the HD trucks from the 50's and 60's and I think some had as many as 48 speeds! They were still diesel. I worked in a shop that built natural gas plants. They had to get a huge skid out of the shop. A hydraulic power pack was brought in to lift it so it could be put on a trailer. Once on the trailer, the hauler brought over an old REO(I think) to move the trailer to the yard pending delivery. They have a fleet of new trucks with a lot more HP but for the real big job brought the old one over and it moved the 100 ton+ skid by itself. There's a reason they aren't still using the IH 549 gas engines in semi's. Even with the most modern hi-tech gas engine, you wouldn't come close to the durability, fuel economy and efficiency of the diesel in heavy duty applications.

A Hemi is a decent engine but also one of the biggest frauds in the automotive world. Dodge owns the trademark and is using it to sell vehicles but that's all it is. The 426 and earlier Hemi engines were in fact true to the term Hemi. The new ones, not so much.

Don't know if I can agree with that either, worst I ever have got was 6 mpg with 25,000 pounds on a fifth wheel trailer and where I work there power strokes will get around 8-9 pulling just around 15,000 never pulled as much with one, not saying it wouldn't do it, it would, but where I work we will load it on the semi or dump truck over 20,000, and gas is quiet a bit cheaper

Back to 6.7 mileage I had a new 11 F-350 w/DEF and it never got over 9/10 pulling a 32 loaded gooseneck and it was a regular cab and the fuel tank held 21 gallons.I had a Duramax before with the LBZ higher performance diesel was about the same ,Now have a new Dodge and it is still about 10.I had a powerstroke that got 14 and an older Dodge 12 valve mechanical that got 16+.The new ones have a great transmission and plenty of power but too many pollution devices take away their mileage.If you can drive 55 and not push the pedal they will improve their mileage but thats not me.Lots of chips,controllers,and exhaust but they are expensive,some illegal,and certain dealers will void warranty but will enhance mileage close to 5MPG
