12 mpg? I can't figure that out. I'm only getting 15 mpg city and 17-18 highway at best. The new ulsd is terrible. Even if I bought a tuner and a intake it might only bump me up to 16 city and maybe 20 highway, from what I've been told. This is a thread I started to figure out the same thing you are looking for maybe it will help. Poor fuel mileage, can't afford to run the truck.
