3- On Hwy, resetting computer every 50 miles or so, notice Van mpg VERY sensitive to speed, guess mostly due to the HR. 25.3 mpg at 55 mph, 22.8 mpg at 65 mph and 21.5 mpg at 75 mph. Wind direction will also affect results a lot.
My van is a 250, diesel, srw, 3.31 LS, HR.
Van had no load, empty. 600 miles on odometer.
Thanks for the details Gianz. Interesting what a difference the 3.31 rear end seems to make on the mileage IMO.

2015 XLT 150 Wagon, 3.5EB/3.31LS, 130" WB, low roof, 8-passenger, full trailer tow incl. brake controller, ordered 12/14, delivered 4/20.

Thanks again for posting yesterday in that other thread. I took the liberty of copying your recent mileage here.

Seems like the 3.31 rear end makes a difference, esp. with Larry getting good MPG with the long and tall . . .
