You may see a slight increase with a turbo back straight pipe and a diy intake/aftermarket.

Couple that with gauges to monitor temps and custom tunes and you'll see another increase. During the warm season, I see around 18mpg average. During the cold it'll drop to 16.5-17mpg due to the anti-gelling additive.

Turbo back pipe is just what it sounds like right? How did you do the DIY air cleaner?

Yea, you can get a 4" for about $300ish. If you go with a 5", it'll only be 5" back from where the 4" down pipe, levels out at the bottom.

The DIY intake is basically a big tractor filter that replaces the factory air box and bolts right onto the intake. Just do a search and you'll fine plenty of info on it.

I thought they stopped making "winter blend" diesel? I thought they were all the same now year round?
