Drastic improvement on MPG!

Well I got all the problemss fixed on my truck. After the fixes and one upgrade I filled up with $4.00 fuel. What was normal to me on a tank of fuel-
First 1/4 tank around 70 miles. After fixes and upgrade....... 160 miles on the first 1/4 tank. We'll see if it holds up throughout the whole tank.

Up pipe gaskets, took the stocks out and used the brass gaskets from Beans Performance diesel, and upgraded the IDM from Beans as well. New wheel bearings all the way around as well as new front rotors. Installed Beans compressor wheel also. Oh and the $4.00 fuel makes it run better too.....
