Getting better fuel mileage.. :dunno:

I have a 05, 6.0l f-250 question is what can I do to improve mileage and not cause problems down the road. Some have suggested getting a Superchip, Dr. performance module, or the SCT and I’m confused because I want the good with out the bad.. little background is I’m a daily driver who occasionally pulls a load (small boat or lowboy). So what’s your best recommendation without having to sacrifice something later..

Yep, SCT with a custom tune from one the popular guys on here.

Personally I run tunes from Cale at BTS. His 140hp race tune had me getting 22ish mpg with 33's and now around 18-20 with 35's.
