Make sure your fuel filter is up to par. Get a custom tuned chip with an economy setting. What are you currently getting? What gears do you have?

open the intake (DIY 6337 intake i the 7.3 mod section)
stock size tires aired up properly
fresh fuel filter
straight pipe exhaust
get rid of the stock flat down pipe
custom tune chip - not a programmer
stay out of the boost as much as you can - stay out of the loud pedal

I have a 96 F350 Dually, with 4.10's, stock tires, and stock engine (no mods or chips), and I just got 18 the other day!! I am not complaining! I have an 04 Ford F150 FX4, that only 13!!
