fue mileage

What kind of fuel mileage can I expect from a 2000 bluebird with a DT466 diesel engine.

Lots of factors to consider in your question. I doubt any two engines will compare evenly depending on all those factors.

What would you say is good mileage? Ten would be generous no?

I have a Bluebird with the 8.3 Cummings and MD3060 and get 9-10 mpg typically.

10 mpg is better than I really expected but that still scares the crap out of me. Thanks for the quick responses. I'm bidding on a 2003 with 49k miles on it. my bid is the high bid right now at 925.00 with 3 days to go, I know its gonna go up at the last few minutes. What would be a good price. conventional bluebird w/ 12 windows I believe
