60 MPH = 15.5 MPG

so i read all over the place of people claiming to be getting 20 mpg and stuff when they only go 60 mph...... for TWO tanks of fuel the speedometer never went above 60 mph and on my last tank i went 407 miles before my fuel light went on. unless my calculations are wrong..... 407 miles divided by 26 gallons = 15.65384615. I calculated this twice! am i missing something here?

what size are your tires and if i were you, i would get rid of that edge. i use to have edge and it killed my mileage even on the economy setting. if your tires are oversized then your speedo is wrong.

You really should look into the SCT Xcal3 with custom tunes for your truck. Its really the best tuning for the 6.0 and it also tunes the trans
