Just found the site 2004 6.0 48,000 miles

Hello,
I just found this site and i have been driving my excursion back and forth to Virginia from California (twice so far) pulling a 7000 lb boat i got about 16 MPG with additives (power Saver Cetane boost) using the truckers fuel seems to give me a bit better mileage I usually get about 20MPG on the highway at 65 14MPG around town. I was told to not put a chip or modify the engine in anyway because of the high pressure fuel/water/oil injection system. I am still under warranty until 100K miles or ten years. What can I do to boost performance for long range driving?

Any help would be appreciated

welcome to the Org bud.... what part of cali do you come too?

as far as your question goes.. who told you not to put a tuner on it?

their are a couple of things you can do to try and boost a lil bit more MPG without doing a tuner like exhaust and intake (even though your stock intake flows more than enough air)

another thing you might want to consider is a set of pillar gauges.... very highly recommended to get boost, pyro, trans temp even on a stock truck....

as far as a tuner goes the only one i recommend for the 6.0L is a custom tuned SCT x3...

if you have any questions on anything i have said please let me know

-Raul

Yes indeed, well I put on an intake and a exhaust and loved the extra power. Didnt really see a gain in fuel economy but I drove alot faster because I liked hearing my exhaust scream ^^ Diddo on what Raul said, just got my x3 loaded up and its sweet all the power it gives you
