Question about Ford F-250
I have a 1997 ford f-250 4x4 and its lousy on gas mileage 9 to 11 miles per gallon in town or trips any idea how to increase the mileage per gallon
You could fill the tires with Nitrogen but it will cost about $15 a tire. You will gain 1.5 - 2 miles more a gallon. Big trucks were made for pulling and hualing only. If your looking at gas mileage then you need a focus.

How many miles does the vehicle have on it? is it an automatic, which engine, my dad has a 93 ford f 250 with almost 200k and it has a 351 and a 5 speed manual, out on the freeway it gets between 15-18 which isnt great but it good for a pickup of that size, If your rig has tires that are the wrong size, that can affect it, also a good tune up with wires, plugs, and filters, air and oil, can improve it. Also, a plugged catalytic converter will kill mileage, but usually the check engine light would indicate an issue there. If you really wanna boost mileage, you can start after market mods like a K&N filter system, new exhaust, any number of things in the engine will help, but in reality, the best you will get is about 20 on the freeway if you are lucky. If mileage is a huge issue and you dont need to pull, sell it and get a toyota
