Fuel millage upgrade?

Hey guys, new to the site, but i like what i see. I recently upgraded from a 96 7.3 to a 08 6.4. i mostly use the truck for pulling cattle or horses and im sure a few hunting trips. I was curious what i can do help the fuel millage. i know its a big truck but my grandpa was getting the same millage in the 70's with his 460. any help is appreciated thanks.

research on here and you wouldnt have to ask this. Not being rude just saying there are a 100 of these questions. Now to answer it. Get a spartan or H&S tuner, CAI AFE stage 2 is what i would recommend, and 5'' striaght pipe exhaust diamond eye has the cheapest.
