'99.5 F250, 7.3. 139000 original miles. when I first got it last year I was getting 13.5 mpg. I put a 4" exhaust and DIY intake and got mileage up to 15.5. Fixed the exhaust back pressure tube and mileage went back down to 13.5. Recently had PCM re-flashed for extra 80HP now mileage is back to 15.5. how do I regain that 2MPG that I lost when I fixed the back pressure tube? Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you!
