Default Real mileage test

Went on a road trip to a funeral for my great-aunt in Kentucky. Put in 19 gallons before I left ($75 @ the pilot). Put 434 miles on it before I put in the same amount in Dickson. 22.79 MPG average. And yes, it was hand calculated. The lie-o-meter said 20.1 ...

Thats great! I never get better than 18 unloaded on the higway, but thats just typical powerstroke fuel economy. My 02 7.3 has done 19.8 once but it was all 55mphm 2 lane roads, it was a fluke I cinsider since I very rarely drive 55!!!

I had serviced it the night before, and put in one of the skinny bottles of Lucas fuel additive. I do it at every service. I run power service in the winter. Some people call it snake oil, but I can tell a difference...

Condolences tdrive0001.

I feel better about my last MPG run, drug an empty heavy duty 16ft
landscaping trailer to Oxford, GA loaded it full with bus seats and went to
I-285 Atlanta to pickup 80 pair of roller skates and back to Ringgold, GA
321 miles round trip.

Averaged 22.7 mpg.
