Spartan 210 MPG

Well let me start off saying that my truck has been tuned since around 200 miles on my odometer. I have only run the 210 because I would need a new clutch to go much more.

My Truck is a 2008 4x4 F350 Dually Crew Cab Short Bed Manual Transmission with 4.10 gears.

During 90% of my driving I tried to stay around 65 but 1 tank I was around 50ish do to traffic and the roads.

Nice write up and thanks for taking the time to give nice details. I suspect your 21 was the time you were driving in the 50's. Are you even considering going with a higher HP tune?

That's about the same mileage I get out of my truck with automatic, so I'm not doing all that bad. I average about 13.4 in the city and since I usually drive around 68 on the highway it usually up in the mid to high 14's...

I was told by my local Ford field service engineer that the stick can't handle a lot of tuning. The torqshift can handle quite a bit more, one reason it is labeled to tow more than the manual from Ford. I do a lot of towing, so I don't know what my mileage is empty, and I know Mick might get a little jealous, but I am getting 13 mpg towing 14k

Yes I want the 275 but I can't justify burning up a clutch for it. Once this clutch dies and I upgrade I will go for the 275 or more if something comes out by then.

Oh and at 65 I am turn 2100RPM and depending on the hill anywhere from 10 to 30lbs of boost.

Incase anyone was wonder you can drift a dually through an intersection and the look on peoples face when they pull up next to you is priceless.

Yes I would have to say if you come by me drifitng in a dually if I was crazy enuff to get besides you I would have a strange look as well. Maybe you should save the drifitng for the BMW or Mazada. The clutch may be the least of your problems if you are drifitng in a dually.
