Well i know its leaking but my truck only gets 8mpg. Nobody can find anything else wrong with the truck so i was curious if it would cause that much of a drop in mpg.

Well besides the up pipes it sounds like you have a ton of carbon build up. Find yourself a LONG steep road and flog the piss out of it. You’ll hear it pop when all that crap in there breaks loose.

you all touch yourselves!
So. What's it to you..?

But honestly your exhaust leak could very well be your only problem in low mpg. Less exhaust energy through the turbo will=less boost. Now your engine is running less efficient, so now you compensate the lack of power with more throttle, expending more fuel. Don’t make your problem worse, fix the up pipes. Then scan for codes, check for boost leaks, adjust your diving habits, air up your tires, and double check your mileage calculations when you’re sober :poke: :D
