Huge Power & 21MPG!

The 7.3 Powerstroke Turbo Diesel is an
incredible workhorse. I commute 50+
miles a day and wanted the better
mileage of a diesel. I'm getting 21+
MPG driving 70mph with AC on full blast
most of the time. But this pleasing
mileage is not at the expense of power.
This truck will flat out move! The neck-
snapping power puts a big grin on my
face every single day I drive it. Ford
builds the toughest truck on the road
as well. The F250 is an extremely stout
vehicle yet comfortable to drive.
Seating, steering and braking are
outstanding, suspension is fairly stiff
but not back-breaking. Doors shut with
the slightest push. I would buy again
Powerstroke! Why get a gasoline engine
that will get half the mileage and have
half the power?
The factory dual-mass flywheel fails
early and often, is horrifically
expensive ($1,200 for parts alone), and
requires two men and a boy to push the
clutch pedal to the floor.
