Ok...No more putting my foot in it

I have had the Mini Maxx, MBRP and S&B CAI installed for a week now. I have shown all my friends and family and probably left too much rubber on our area roads. I am going to spend this next tank of fuel driving as conservative as possible and post my MPG's on this thread. I mean like seriously baby it. This first tank I averaged in the 16 range highway and around 13 driving around town. But like I said this mileage contains multiple 0-80 runs and a lot of 60-90 runs on the highway. I will however continue to run the Hot Setting on the HD300 tune. Wish me luck. This will probably be the week that every guy that pulls next to me at a light will want to race and I will have to remained disciplined.

I will lean on the ORG for some help staying disciplined. Thanks

lol yeah its probably not gonna happen if you have only had it a week.... the excitement is still there, so you won't be able to resist. Im sure you will mellow out a lot though, as that first week is the hardest! in a seriousness, good luck... your truck probably needs a break.... or else it will break driving it like that regularly

I've had mine tuned for a year and I still love to get into the go pedal. It never gets old.

Cycleman07 I am installing the same setup this weekend you have installed. I am trully looking to be as excited as you are. I CAN"T WAIT ! I noticed you have a fifth wheel and was wondering how much it weighs and does your truck pull it without a problem. I am looking at getting a fifthwheel myself and they are in a weight range of about 10,000 to 13,000 lbs. Wanna make sure i can pull it with no problem being tuned.

Keep in mind, unless you have driven a stock truck with the DPF/CAT in place with the goal of achieving the best possible mileage you can for quite a while. Then you don't know what conservative is.

Need help controlling the skinny pedal??? Competition will provide the impetus. I compete with a deleted 6.7 dodge to see who can get the best mileage, requires focus, restraint, and a potential 'win'.

I have always been a lead foot, this 'competition' has helped tremendously.
