I own a C5500 with the 5-speed auto. Has the 8.1 motor. Currently I average 6.5mpg. This is with a 14' flatbed dumb weighing in at 12,300lbs with two employees, two full tool boxes, near full tank, and side-gates on. Overall a good truck. You can expect the engine to last to 200,000 miles based on what I have read and my experience confirms that at 215,000.
I like it so much that after looking at the f550 and terra-star Im not impressed enough to spend $55-75,000 with what I see.
I believe the c4500 shares many parts with the c5500
