Mileage for the first 2 days after engine swap and SCT Tunes

I've spent most of the last 2 days on the performance setting with a new 4" turbo back exhaust so you can imagine how many times the pedals been mashed.

I pulled into the gas station at a smooth 3.52 a gallon for diesel

and only put in 11 gallons! I did the math and I averaged 15.4, I realize that isn't exactly gonna win a prize for "being green" for the environment, but I can't hardly be dissappointed. This truck was getting 12-13 ish at best with the old 03 engine in it and babying it. I have a crappy strategy and this is not terrible. I'm not sure if would do it all that much good to get a roll back done by PHP..... OR WOULD IT??? please share your stories

The truck has 4.10 gears....
