    The truck is a 2000 Ford E350 w/147k miles. It has the Triton v8 engine. Owner is asking $5,000. How is the gas mileage on these for anybody running one?

    I can speak for the engine in this van, as I have one in my Expedition. The engines are great, will haul anything I ask it too. I get around 10 hauling a single axle trailer with 4 foot sides loaded with mulch or 2 mowers.

    I'm not sure about you're area but in the Midwest that truck is over priced by about $2,000
