Do yourself a huge favor. Forget the notion that "tunes" improve MPG.

Re: 6.0 best fuel mileage

17-18 stock.. Just a "4" inch exhaust.. That's about the best your going to see out a 6.0.. Chips, intakes ect buys you nothing in mpg's.. Been there done that.. IMO, 17-18mpg out of a CCLB dually is pretty damn good for a heavy truck..
