Just took a trip from Texas to Missouri over the Memorial Day weekend. Set the cruise at 65 and low and behold I finally got the mileage out of this thing I was hoping for:

750 Miles on the tank, 49.75 gallons of Diesel= 15.075 MPG for the trip up. Man was I happy...best tankful I had ever averaged before this was 11.5 MPG. Every other time I had ran a tank full non-stop on the highway was while towing at least 10K in the trailer.

Finally felt like the mods I have made were good for something other than power. BTW, this was done with the H&S Wild Tunes...I tried it on the trip to see if I could get better mileage than the KEM 345 tune.

I know 15 is not that great compared to some of you, but to me with my big CC Dually weighing in at 10K with 4.88 gears I am more than happy!

Cheers,

Schmidtty

At 65 with those gears I am still turning right around 2050. Thankfully, the 22.5" rolling stock tames the gear a little.
