MPG's????

i have a 2005 f250 with the 6.0. Truck is on a 10" lift with 38x14x24 kumho's. I run an SCT tuner on it with AFE stage 2 CAI. I also have 4:10 gears front and rear. I talked to a guy who had a similar set up and he was telling me he was getting close to 20mpg's!!! Anybody have any info on what I could do to increase my mpg's which are currently around 13? Thanks in advance for your help.

I dont see a feasible way of reaching 20mpg with 4.10s and 38s. Youre lucky to reach 20 with pizza cutters. I am at 18.9 on highway at 70mph. All stock

He might get 20mpg coasting downhill.... Honestly, the best fuel economizer is you. Keep the boost down to get the best mileage.

I have 4.5" and 35s with 3.73s and I avg 15 from Seattle to San Diego running 75mph. That is tuned with Matt's SRL and a 4" turbo back MBRP with CAT installed. My mileage did drop after the tune almost 4 MPG. Don't know if it is a tune issue or me and my foot.

I do have about 10# boost just cruising now and I know boost is anti economy.

Stock 250

I have a bone stock 250 2wd with 80k and I get 22mpg with the cruise set at 70. I would imagine that guy "getting" 20 with 4:10s is smoking sumthing and I dont mean black smoking Chevys or Dodges

Seriously, the only way he is getting 20 mpg is w/ the truck parked in his driveway and the keys in his pocket.
