Where did my milage go?

Hey guys I just bought a 01' SC 7.3 about a week ago. I put on 4" turbo back exhaust, S&B intake, 18K chip and a boost tube blow off from dfuser in it about 2 days ago. I had been gettin 17mpg bone stock and now the thing is doing good to chug out 15. Whats the deal here? Any ideas would....Thanks

LOL... bet your right foot is alot heavier post mods then it was before. Give it some more time and you should see it raise again. Curious as to how you're figuring your mileage though in just 1 week

Are you running 200+ miles a day?

In order to accurately record mileage it's best to do it over at least 3 tankfuls and calculate it by hand. Welcome to the site though!

usually power mods means more fun, more fun= heavy foot,Heavy foot=15mpg. Like above give it some time and it should come back. I'm not sure if the 18K chip would increase mileage as much as others also

Hey thanks guys. Ya i hear you about the heavy foot but I am in the military and drove back home so all those mileage calculations are highway of around 150 per trip. And when I say pushin 15 thats the best ive had so far. The past 2 trips have been around 11. I ordered that boost blow off deal from dfuser and am wondering if i should yank that thing back off?? No real need in my eyes for it. What do you guys think.
