yes they are decent depending on what you get, the older fords 7.3l stroker was a hog, a power house but a hog im a ford guy but for the best fuel economy in a diesel you would want a newer dodge with the 5.9li cummins they range from 17 to 27 mpg

a 05' 5.9 cummins gets like 20-22 on the highway

MOST DIESEL CARS AND TRUCKS ARE IN SOME CASES BETTER WHEN LOOKING AT M.P.G. ESPECIALLY RECENT YEARS BUT. WHEN YOU CONFIGURE THE COST OF DIESEL FUEL PER GALLON COSTING MORE THERE REALLY ISN'T MUCH DIFFERENCE.
