Better MPG/Towing Enhancement

I'm new here, so bear with me. I just got an '08 F-550 with the 6.4L. The engine is totally stock and I use the truck for work towing large diesel generators to-and-from job sites. I take the truck home with me every night and my commute is about 120 miles both ways. I'd like to get some recommendations on how I can increase my gas mileage and also help with towing. I've done some basic searches and have come across the DPF Delete Kits and other programmers but am unfamiliar with them. I'm not looking to go too crazy with the mods and upgrades because it's a company truck. Thanks in advance for your suggestions...

Since your not wanting to go crazy and all and tow alot, I would suggest calling Aaron at Rudy's Performance (dpfdeletekits.com) and gettin him to put you on the right track.. Or, you can call KEM performance and talk to mike about makin you a custom tune to suit your needs as far as shifting and towing

2010 CC/SB FX4 Lariat.. Tuned By Eric@IDP and Matt@Gearhead

Thinking about getting rid of the stock 6.7 turbo?
Check this out... and research before buying
