I agree with QMartinez but will add a little more to his point.
Your best bet to increase your MPG is to buy the hottest tune you can. For example, for someone that doesn't run alot of heavy loads or tow, a tune like an Xtreme Race would be your best bet for getting the highest MPG out of your rig. That's because the fuel delivery is more precise, the torque converter locks up sooner, and you overall have more power at less pedal and RPM.
Now if you're going to be towing a 5th wheel I would suggest getting ahold of someone like Eric at Innovative Diesel and telling him that you need a tow tune. Let him know what kind of driving you will be doing (what terrain, elevation, etc), how heavy your load is, what mods are done to your truck, etc. He will be able to write you a tune that will give you around an extra 50-60 hp as well as increased transmission performance.
