Take it into the dealership to get the latest computer flash.

and 10 MPGs to meet is a lil off. but, the 6.4 powerstrokes dont get very good mileage at all

If it's your first diesel you might be experiencing turbo lag and just not be used to it. Diesels don't have very good throttle response in general.

dpas 1973....at no load ours gets about 10.4 mpg but w/ a loaded 26' enclosed car trailer ours gets about 7.8 mpg.
As far as the flat response, before the first dealer flash, it was strong at all rpm's...after the first dealer flash, it's dead until about 2000 rpm, then is great. After a year, I'm still livid that Ford took away my power. What astonishes me more, the dealer, by his inactions, doesn't appear to care.

I used a friends 08 Duramax w/ 26 enclosed trailer (loaded) just 2 weeks ago and the power and milage is a country mile better...no comparison.
A recent developement...Ford had told me last year that regeneration was acceptable within the range of every 100 to 900 miles. A year ago ours regen'd every 120 miles. Within the last 45 days, its moved to regenerating every 37 miles. It's now back at the dealer to address this issue.

I have to say, at purchase, I was very proud of the truck..but the way Ford has treated my situation, it will be my last Ford vehicle and the company I own/manage will no longer consider purchasing a Ford.
