Could be really wrong on this...but I have been told that the new diesels are so computer programmed for mph's,,,that you will get the same whether you are empty or pulling a load. Sounds like bullshit to me..but thats what I have been hearing...

zippo , mine is a 26 ft layton 5th wheel, 6300lbs. i pulled it with a 96 f350 4/4 with a 5.7 gas v8. that truck got 17 mpg on a trip to fla empty not towing . when i towed that camper on some other trips the milage dropped to 13 mpg. havent pulled the camper with this 05 ive got , but am sure the gas milage will drop. you may not drop as much as a gas motor , but my friend the milage will drop.

Marc, I appreciate the update

Weasle, I'll bet it doesn't drop too much.  The 5th wheel is a 26.5 ft model, actually 30 ft front to back, probably about 7000 lbs dry weight.  Anybody out there with any experience hauling something like this with a stroker?

So far I am loving the damn thing.

LMAO :PMost of the people I know that have gone to diesel, find that fuel economy starts getting better with more miles. They usually peak at around 50,000 to 60,000 miles.  Though, I haven't heard much about the latest Ford Stroker, it sure seems to be a lot quieter than it's previous versions.

I figure now that spring break is over, the prices ought to be creeping down a bit ....until they let those little hose monsters out for the summer.
