2004 Ford F250 5.4 Triton super duty.
Gets 7mpg on a good day. Pulling something or pushing snow brings in around 4mpg. I rarely drive it unless I am making money doing so.

My worst MPG was 16.945 during winter and with mostly trips around town. The max MPG was 23.487 on a trip.

Overall, I average 19.890 which is about 30% more than the EPA expects of my ride.

I had a 1976 Cadillac Sedan De Ville back in the 80's and would get 9-10 mpg around town and 12-14 mpg on the highway. It had the 500ci engine. I think the fuel tank held 28 gallons.
