sct livewire w/dpf delete

What kind of gas mileage is your truck saying on the dash compared to actual? I have not filled up yet but on the dash it is saying 26.6 mileage after 170 miles of mostly highway. Do you think it's reading way to high? Thanks in advance.

I thought you were going to hold off on doing the dpf delete? What tuner did you buy?

The SCT tuning affects the mileage reading. Mine read about 30% higher than actual.
