    Buddy just bought a mid 90's ford 460 ex cab 2 wd dually long bed with automtic and overdrive, he says it gets about 20? I have no clue what gear it has but I can not believe it gets that. The big block chevy I had got about 10 most the time. Any body know anything about the MPG on the truck just out of curiosity?

    You can call bullsh!t plain and simple on 20mpg. I would think more in the realm of 9-12mpg.

    Thats what I thought. I had a cummins ex cab dually 96 model that seemed to get pretty good but could not stand that automatic, had to sell it. Every other haul truck I ever had was a 4 or 5 speed. And every 4 speed I had got about 10 MPG PERIOD big block, small block, loaded or unload just 10 MPG. usaually hauled cars or trucks on car trailer or dum stuck like steel flip up loading docks. Thanks guys I was just wanting to make sure I hadnt been missing something.

    I had a 1966 LTD that only had the F block 390 in it. It only got 6 mpg......

    But some of that might have been my 16 y/o foot at the time.....

    20 with a 460.... Yea right.....

    Nuff' Said, best I've seen out of one was 11. Best song about a Ford I've ever heard as well.
