Post your gas mileage.

I am getting 16mpg with edge chip set on 1(mileage). I also have 305/65/18 tires(not that much bigger than stock). What is everyone else getting?

ha i got yall beat. just filled up last night. all city driving, went 17.493 mpg. the tank before that was all highway. 550 miles one way. and went 24.369mpg. on a race file. LOL. But then again milage shouldnt matter if a rig like ours. As my father says, if you want pulling power buy a psd. if you want milage buy a cummins cuz thats all there good for. lol

24mpg on a RACE file. I guess we should all just run race files. I guess you have to be carefull not to put your foot into it. Which tuner/file is that?

so far i have gotton the best with DJ's looney on the highway. and the best city from dfuser's track file. i was told by several tunners that a hot file will offer the best mpg increas due to the way the injector tuning is done.
