There are a lot of variables. Good question, but to be a good comparison we all would have to drive roughly the same speed under the same conditions. I would say that yes I am going about the same distance as you per tank. I have hit the 500 miles per tank 28 gallons I think. To do that you have to work at it, first it can only be done on the HWY. Try to average 75mph, when going downhill let the truck get up to 80 mph, when going uphill let it slow to 70 mph. I have done this traveling from Georgia to Arkansas. So you have an idea of the grades I am referring to nothing drastic. Running 80 mph I would only go around 400 miles per tank. Any body getting better than this I would like to know how? My truck was stock when I did this. Now I have DIY 6637, not taken any long trips yet, but seems to be getting at least .5 mpg better.

Before I got my DP Tuner with the mods listed in my sig i was getting about 12-13 city, 14 or so mixed and about 15 on the highway @ 65. With my new DP Tuner in 80E i got 17 city and i have not been able to do a mixed or pure highway tank yet. Hope this helped.

Dietoremain, I see you have several mods, did you have all of them when you got the 22 mpg? Did you do the mods all at once or in stages? Which one do you feel helped your mpg's the most?

With my mods below and my chip on 80hp DD 95% of the time, I am averaging 18.45 mpg, over 18mpg the last 4 fill-ups!

Best way to calculate your mileage is to fill it up ALL THE WAY, not when the pump clicks off, but until you see the fuel (not foam) in the filler-neck. Run 100-200miles, (or next fillup,) fill up all the way again, to the neck, and divide miles by gallons.

The fuel gauge, and the overhead displays are inaccurate. I can go 130ish miles before the needlestarts to drop.

I love that part! I fulled up Sunday morning and have gone 70+ miles and the gauge still says I'm full! It is a little annoying sitting there clicking and clicking and clicking until it finally reaches full but oh well.

Haven't calculated fuel lately but I was averaging 15 - 18. It's probably worse now since the windows are usually down and I tend to put my foot in it a little more now that I can hear more
