575 miles in 1 tank of fuel

Thanks to Rudy's and H&S. If you are on the fence about deleting, go for it. I about $hit my pants with the difference in mileage. I am getting over 550 miles a tank, all city driving. Plus there is a lot of power.

I only have a Bank exhaust installed and I'm getting 350-380 miles on a full tank.

My Black Maxx, Flo Pro DPF/CAT delete and Banks Intake just got here yesterday can't wait to get this all installed.

I hope to get more but 575 is the most Ive heard of, Must be nice!

H&S with S&B intake and DPF cat delete. I run lucas oil treatment with every fill up. Yea I baby it, try to keep under 2000 rpm. Once I get up to 60 mph it does not turn too many rpm so I guess that helps. The numbers are from the trip odometer, I think it is accurate, if it is not let me know. Its 4wd with 35's also.
