How to: Clean EBPS to gain lost MPGs (Video)

If you have noticed a steady decline in MPGs, the first place you want to look is the Exhaust Back Pressure tube and sensor. Why here? Because its free and easy to fix if it is the problem, and quite often it is.

Hard to say. It could be small like a few mpgs, but also could take you down to 9MPG averaged.

Thanks for another great video, Trey. You can become our go-to how-to video guy around here if you keep it up.

I've been meaning to do this myself, this will definitely help.

Great vid! I did mine last year, and good thing I checked. The tube was cracked in two pieces! If you haven't checked your EBP sensor and tube out..do it.

Can't say I noticed any difference in mileage when I replaced the plugged EBP sensor on my truck. I just didn't like the SES light on the dash.

If you think cleaning that tube out will improve your fuel mileage then you should replace your O2 sensor too lol

Jody at DP Tuner mentioned that that sensor and tube are necessary for proper fuel mapping. A lot of guys with 150k+ that clean the sensor and tube have reported regaining mileage. It doesn't improve mileage per se, but you can recapture lost mileage.
