You don't have a 26 gallon tank, you have a 29 gallon tank. 320 miles on 25-26 gallons isn't that bad actually with the ULSD... I'm only getting 13mpg right now with my driving habits and 33" tires. Best way to get good fuel mileage is to keep an egg under the gas pedal and get an economy tune from DPTuner.

I run a 4" lift with 35's. I know somebody is going to claim bs, but I got 18.2 mpg coming from Nashville TN to Raleigh NC running 72 mph @ 1900rpms. My calculations were made with my GPS reading my distance traveled and my speed. I also run DP's econo tune and was actually running my 18k with it this time. Best I can do with just the econo tune is 17.0

well you can't have it all, you've either gotta give up the donut tires for less mileage or keep the donuts and get the good mileage

If you haven't corrected the speedo then you are getting more miles per tank than it shows. I have 3:73 gears a superchip flashpaq intake, exhaust and get about 19 mpg and thats not all at 2K!!
