My Corvette will often show 99 MPG when I have the instant mileage display on and am coasting down a hill or overpass.

With the major complaint on the 6.4 being fuel economy, I think we are seeing alot of "hype" on the 6.7's mileage. I think the fuel mileage will be improved as Ford says (18%), but so far we are seeing lots of reports indicating 60 - 100% better mileage.

This video is nothing more than a trick; smoke & mirrors. Heck, when I bought the first 6.0, the salesman hit the reset on the trip computer and for a few moments we saw close to 30 MPG, with him exclaiming how much more fuel efficient it was than my previous 7.3. It didn't take but a few miles for the real figure to settle in at 14 MPG.

the only thing that matters is this thing dont turn out like the pos 6.0 and can get some decent mileage like diesels are supposed too, thats why we all started buying them right, reliablity and better mileage....and nowadays guys are all happy when they can go 10,000miles with there trucks and not have problems....
