Looking for Best Upgrade combo to achieve the best mpg's
This is my first post as a user on powerstroke forums and i am relatively new to the powerstroke engines. I have owned a 12 valve and 24 valve cummins and with just adding tuner air intakes and fuel plate deletes i was able to achieve up to 24 mpg in some cases. But my powerstroke does not seem to get nearly that same economy my 7.3 has 220k miles and is a 2wd with 3.73 gears. I do not know what kind of mileage im getting due to my fuel gauge giving false readings when i get to the 1/4 tank mark. I started this thread looking for input on what would be the best changes to make for better mileage and what brands of these aftermarket products work the best for the powerstroke. Thank You
