hahahahahahahahahahahahahaha these savage posts out of nowhere X'D

i would assume a 1000hp 7.3 diesel has pretty much a non existant mpg which is all the more reason why im adding a bulk tank, i dont care about mpg of all things just wanted to know the mpg, if anyone actually happened to know of what a 1000hp 7.3 gets as a fun fact of the day kind of thing laughable as it may be, its all good though.

Mpg will depend on how its tuned, setup, driven, geared, truck weight, altitude, etc etc way too many variables to know fuel economy. Get some 350/200s and enjoy a street truck with manners and still be able to break 750hp with spray when you want.

I drove a ~900hp 6.0 on a 1300 mile trip last year to the mountains and averaged 12mpg on the drive out there.

Diesel fuel economy is inversely proportional to the amount of power being used - not the amount of power its capable of. The more power you use - the lower the fuel economy numbers. The baseline fuel economy of say just driving around on backroads and using similar power to a stock truck will be determined by the specific setup itself. If you have the truck setup to be efficient in that range then it could do decent. Say your path to 1000rwhp involves just a single HX-82 turbo - its going to suck to drive and get ****ty fuel economy. Now if your path involves a reasonable set of compounds or triples that would likely get better fuel economy. Of course I'm painting rather broad strokes with this statement, so your mileage my vary.

If its not broke - add power until it is.

FYI, Swamps measures their hp at the crank not the wheels, the highest hp HEUI 7.3 makes 808rwhp, if you want more then that you’ll have to spray it.

I’m not sure what MPG you can squeeze out of a truck with 400/400’s but my 6,200 lb 666rwhp 7.3 can get 21 MPG unloaded at 65 MPH. I only get that good of MPG a couple times a year because I can’t keep my foot out of it.

Yes you are right Ron. Zach was well over 1K fuel only according to his times and weight.
