I just calculated my fuel consumption and i am getting 15.2 mpg. Not bad for running 35in mud terrains. That is 1/2 highway 1/2 city driving. What are some ways i could squeeze some more miles out of a tank of diesel?

with all the things I have done to my truck, the biggest variant on milage comes from the gas pedal. I think the injectors helped a bit as well, but it could've been the FASS. Running primarily around town, I get about 17mpg and on the freeway, I have done as well as 23mpg, but that was the exception, not the rule. Usually I get around 19. If I keep my foot out of it, I do better though. What gears do you have in your truck?

The 3/4 can have 3.55 or 4.10 but most likely 3.55's

A good exhaust and intake should help alittle. I picked up about a mile or two.

I get around 20.5 with my '94 with a little modding. My newly acquired '01 with Edge Comp, 5" stacks, etc. I'm gettin' about 16. Still playing with the options on the box and need to learn more about these 24v Cummins.
