I no I really shouldn't be that impressed, but on Sunday I drug my Dad's 8,000lb flat bed from Illinois to central Iowa. Anyway my 7.3 pulled like a champ doing 75 the whole way passing everyone all while getting 12mpg. Last year I pulled a 91 Mercury Grand marquis on a uhaul trailer (about 6,000lbs) behind my 4.6l F-150 and got 8mpg driving 65 switching in and out of overdrive. Regardless, Im glad I was able to get one these awesome 7.3s.
