March 9, 200610-11 is about what my stepdad gets on his 6.0 an about 14-15 highway, dunno tho
March 9, 2006Sorry bud but you canâ€™t do a whole lot with the fuel consumption. My neighbor has a 6.0 and he gets right around 12mpg. He does not drive it that much and doesnâ€™t have a heavy foot (whatâ€™s the point of having a 6.0).
The cheap things you can do is watch your tire pressure, drive the speed limit, donâ€™t carry excess weight, and lay of that gas pedal. The expensive stuff is a K&N filter, a clean fuel system (not so expensive), tornado (lol JK about the tornado) and a costume tune and that may help a bit.
March 9, 2006I get 11 city and 14 hwy with my 2000.
March 9, 2006welcome to the world of the 6.0, buddy!
March 10, 2006well I found a solution...my boss said that I can start driving the company truck home because he to has a 6.0 and he can feel my pain...I am going to get with whiteIce and see about Charlie's custom program job I heard he is the best...
March 11, 2006Just don't pass a gas station!!! THats what I do! Yeah 6.0's suck. I don't think I'll get another 6.0. Prolly a duramax next or a big block.
March 11, 2006i getting 13.2 combined but mostly city , guess the supercharger helps get the mass moving LOL
March 11, 2006I get about 13 mph. With all the miles I drive, I end up buying gas about every 2-3 days. It doesn't help being in California where the gas taxes make it about the highest price gas in America. I think I spend about $600 a month on gas.
March 13, 2006If you are all city driving 12-13 is as good as it gets. If you have hwy with little traffic you can get 16-17 with Hypertech tunner, dual exhaust, and k&n intake. That is what I have in mine. My round trip is 100 miles a day. That ia why I am moving to Cypress closer to work. ( Anyone interested in house in Friendswood call me ) But there isn,t much more hope with gas motor in a heavy truck. Keith
March 13, 2006I'm getting about 14. Mine's mostly city with a little highway driving.
