Looks near new. The sacrificial metal looks intact.

I also did a w250 with a Hallmark popup camper, great combo. I very curious how your getting such great
mileage. After my injector was rebuilt the best I've been able to get is 12 & that sucks

Dont think I mentioned my mileage and have not checked it since adding the camper, was getting high teens and low 20s before, but you bring up a good question. How much should I expect to loose with the camper. I am sure this must have been asked before.

Still searching for my MPG

My 93 W250 diesel extended cab long bed with bed cap on routinely gets 19.5 to 20 mpg on the freeway if I keep it around 70 mph or so.
With camper on I lose about 2 mpg at speed.
At slower speeds (55 is about optimal) mileage with bed cap is close to 21 to 22 mpg and with camper on around 19.5.
BTW: I have an OEM Getrag 5-speed.
I have a good friend who has a 93 W250 regular cab diesel long bed and his mileage consistently runs about 1 mpg better than mine. I do not know why. He has an 80's FWC Keystone and the same model bed cap. He does not have an aftermarket exhaust. He does have an aftermarket New Ventures 5-speed and I think the final gearing may be slightly better for mileage than the getrag. Another difference is that his truck sits a bit higher and "square" to the pavement whereas mine has a slight forward rake to it (front is maybe an inch or 2 lower than "square" to the pavement).
