Probably gets the same MPG,
Little truck working VERY hard Vrs. the big truck working hard.

Kind of like my Cummins with almost TWICE the HP [425HP] and Twice the Torque [800+]getting 50% better MPG than the gas motor I used to have.

That and some people have a bunchO-money or sponsors and don't care.

Maybe, Maybe not. In 2008 the F-450 with the 6.4 could have a gear ratio of 4.30 or 4.88. If you chose the 4.88 the HP & torque was lower than the truck that was equipped with the 4.30's.

As far as tow vehicles go, there is only one way to tow...... :thumbsup: :smitty: :joecool: :skipper: :sarge:........... :popcorn:
