I used to drive a 95 mack with the same specs cross country. I got between 7-8 mpg average. I put 250,000 on her before I got done. One of the best otr trucks I ever drove. Nice looking truck!

i got a 97 mack ch @ factory 400 hp pulling hopper bottom short haul(45 miles a shot) on hilly back roads all day pullin 80-84K with a fair amout of idling time and i pull a constant 6.4 or better mpg in the summer. I did ad a box to boost power ten or thirty percent at the flip of a switch and been pulling about the same mpg( its been on the high setting for a while now). Id say pulling dry van that the last posts reply is not out of line. When i pulled cattle pot i used to pull off 6.7 and those things pull hard empty. Dont sound like a bad deal.. How much is he asking??????

t2130 trans(25% over dirve) LP 24.5, and 3.87 ratio, 1400 rpm @ 60mph
