New FICM yesterday

Just like the title says...Saturday I was driving around and the truck started hesitating and dieing down as I was driving around corners or at a stop light. I then came out Sunday morning and the truck just turned but no start. I dropped it off at the local diesel shop,not the dealer and my FICM had 13 volts on the test...he said it was the lowest they have ever seen...anyway after a 1300 bill the truck runs great and I hope my mileage will now go back to where it was a month ago.I was also pushing some blue and that has cleared up as well after the new FICM...
