So far truck has worked out excellent. No real problems at all. We did have to have the computer reset by the dealer at one point because it developed a shifting issue, but the reprogramming took care of it. Haven't really ever checked the fuel mileage on the truck since we put it into service.

Would be interested to know if how International addressed all the problems Ford had with the 6.4. I sure would be interested to know what kind of mileage you are getting. Share if you get the chance to figure the mileage.

I just bought a 2013 Terrastar. Very strong truck and very nice work truck. Love it. I also have a Ford F350 also happy with that truck. But the Terrastar is a nice strong truck.

I never did check the mileage. The truck overall has been excellent. It hasnt had any issues needing to return the shop. When we first got it, it had an issue with the computer and wouldnt climb a hill, but they reflashed the computer and we never had the problem again. We have a 10' fisher plow on this truck and have not put a sander in the back yet. We just put some sand in for ballast. For plowing the truck does absolutely great. So far we are extremely impressed with our truck. The guys really like the visibility when driving.

That's great. Thanks for the reply. how many miles do you have on it now. I know that I don't put many miles on my dump truck.
