MPG for 3.2 Diesel Powerstroke Thread....

Thought I'd be the one to start the "official" MPG for the 3.2 thread. Try to post your numbers and note which rear end gear ratio you have. Also please note the total mileage on your van....

Real curious to see this go down.

I get on the low side of what lots of guys claim with my 3.0 V6 2013 Sprinter 3500.

The Nag 5 blows.Full stop.

Savvy sprinter drivers massage around it with scan gauge monitoring, but day in day out, the Fords got to be better in the trans space.

Im guessing 6 to 6 the transmission in the ford wins the round.

Of course the smaller benz with the 7 speed gets better mileage than the 3.2, but how does it run and last at rated weight?

Uncle Dave, this thread is intended for Transit owners with the 3.2 diesel to report actual MPG results. The following forum might be a better place to discuss Transit vs. Sprinter general issues, and you would be most welcome to start your own topic there, or to post in one of the existing threads.

Thank you in advance for your understanding, that this MPG sub-forum will work best for all if the posts here stay on-topic.

Previous reports of 3.2 MPG in different threads may need updates that this thread now exists?

Not sure of my rear end ratio? But I have the LWB dually HD model and get 19.5-20.5mpg with mixed driving. I have gotten 26mpg on a short road trip that was all highway, but that dropped back down once I got back into town lol.

My van has 5k miles on it.

It would be great if you could look up your rear end ratio from your invoice or window sticker. Thanks
