Change Injestors to gain MPG?

Are there any injectors out there that would give a mpg boost as well as a HP boost? Thanks

Some say the new 8 hole nozzles will give you better atomization and better mpg. but you could buy ALOT of diesel for the 3000+ it will cost you for injectors.

Elite has stock injectors with 8 holes. For cc size, I would say under 180cc with the 8 hole tip.

For the costs of modded injectors you better be driving a ton. I read of good results with 155-175cc injectors and the 8-hole nozzles.

I would use a Programer for Max efficiency for your driving habits. My 3 level of programing are totally different at different RPM's.

I usualy try keeping the turbo at lower values when cruising and the truck has been very efficient at any speed while towing or not.

My best tool for Effiency has been the scangaugeII that can be used as a MPG trainer, extra gauges, and code reader.

Again yesterday I found that my truck was most efficient on Drive then Overdrive at 50MPH, by as much as 20% better on level 3.

2005, 6.0L, 6 Spd Std, 3.73 Rear End, F250SD, Extended Cab, 4 x 4 Long Bed. 2008 extension mirrors. GPS/TV/DVD/CD/Rear Cam/Radio installed, Max Energy programer by Hypertech, and Fuel Pressure Gauge. ScanGaugeII for 60 plus XGauges, and MPG. ELC Cat EC-1 Coolant, Pull a 39ft 15500Lbs 5th Wheel Camper Trailer. Mileage Avg is 20MPG, and pulling 12.6MPG.
