Exclamation F350 gas mileage

Hi

I am interested in purchasing a mint! 1985 F350 cab and 1/2, 460, 4x4, LPG.
I am mainly interested in the truc to tow my car transporter, but I also intend to use it daily.

What would I expect for petrol mileage and LPG mileage?

I own a 1970 Boss 429 HEMI mustang, so usually I don't care to much about gas mileage, but this truck will be driven :)

Are there any issues to look out for? common problems?

Cheers
Gary

Bump

Come on guys, there must be someone here with a 460 F250 or F350 that can answer my above question???

I am very interested in the truck, but I am a little concerned about Feul/LPG consumpion.

What are you guys getting?

Cheers
Gary

Hi thanks for that.

I ended up buying a 1985 F250 extended cab, 4x4, 6.9L diesel and am finding it quit "economical"! Its just a little bit worse than my VX Landcruiser.

All good

Thanks again

Re: F350 gas mileage

Good choice. I have heard alot of good of those diesels. I like my truck, but at the current gas prices it hits hard. I would like to convert mine to a diesel, but from what I have researched, not very possible..good luck with your truck.
