Best strategy for fuel economy/reliability
Hey everyone, just wondering what the best strategy for my 2003 6.0L would be for getting the best possible fuel mileage. I'm also thinking about ordering an SCT X3 and getting an economy tune for it if I can realistically expect the 2-4mpg claims.
I'm a tech in a ford dealership so I have access to everything I need to do this, just wondering which strategy would be the best for my truck.
I currently seem to be getting 12mpg in town being very easy on it. I'm am using Motorcraft cetane boost with antigel with every fill up.
Any help is greatly appreciated. Really wanted to get the most mileage possible out of this truck.
