Yeah but you can also run a cummins to 15,000 miles on oil changes per the manual. I run 7500 miles. not 3000 like a gas engine. I get 18mpg empty all the time. With 18,000lbs I averaged 14 mpg. 16 empty and 12 full. I you had the 6 speed with 3.73 gears you may get better mileage but at 62 or so my tach is at 2000 rpms.

Well sofar myself i have not seen anybody around here getting much over 17 with a 3500 with a aluim flat with 3.54 gears and a 6 speed and as for towing i know for a fact that as set from the factory STOCK the old 460 would plum EAT a cumming alive . As back in 96 we went to a tractor pull down south of here and i had the Minni Mo U loaded to 75-7600 and my S/Mta loaded to 9000 the old Ford weighted in at 7500 lbs and my Blair goose neck weights in with all chains and binder at 7500 , THat is around 31000 the pull in Carrollton was a morning pull and then the one in Lisbon was and evening pull . The U pulled in four classes and the S/Mta pulled in three loaded up and set sail for Lisbon this is HILL country . One guy from Pa beat me out the gate with his New Dodge Cummings one ton 4X4 with one Farmall M on the deck i passed him on the long hill .

I have 400 hp with mine and my dad is a huge ford 460 fan and even at stock my Cummins will beat him easily and his is engine has been played with a bunch.But on the upside your 460 wont last near as long as my Cummins. I will go head to head with you and you will stop for fuel more than I will. The newer cummins dont get the fuel mileage of the old ones.At 400 hp a Cummins will still last to over 600k.I have seen that done with my own eyes. There is a reason that there are way more cummins out there than 460s.But hey if you like your old truck, more power to ya.
