EGT's and Additives

I was reading about keeping the EGTs down to help with mpg but its really hard to keep mine below 600. I have dual stacks, afe stage II intake, and a chip. I dont know if those will help lower them or not but is there anything else to get them lower?

I was also wondering if any of the additives that are on the market actually help mpg or do anything? Some people people told to stay away from them and others say to use both fuel and oil additives? I'm still learning and tryin to figure out the right answers instead of hear say haha. thanks in advance

I've never known any additive to noticeably improve MPG.

Re: EGT's and Additives

What do you have for a truck? My 6.0's benifit from adding Motorcraft cetane performance improver.. I do notice better throttle response, smoother idleing, and it helps to keep my EGR system working properly.. Most cetane rating's at the pump are 34-40, (not good).. If I run out of it, my truck runs like azz...
