Between srw and drw, more like 2. the drw has higher gear ratio that drops mpg, along with the dual wheels of course.

no the srw would be more capable to get that than the drw.

so 19 can be a realistic number with intown driving. my short test drive(20 min) go me 12 and that was with a little playing around and idling time. so you are saying i can expect a 7mpg increase with a custom tune and full exhaust?
thanks for the help so far

Can't really believe the in cab display, best to hand calculate each tank. The way you drive it will really make the biggest difference, but a tuner will improve things a bit. Do you have the need for a DRW? I like them, don't get me wrong but I would never own one unless I really needed. Parking is hard enough in a SRW CC (longbed?) truck, DRW is a nightmare. You buy 6 tires instead of 4, etc.
just my thoughts!

i dont know about 19mpg srw. im reg cab and single rear wheel and i get about 13-14. egr delete, custom tune, straight pipe exhaust, etc.... but i dont have the lightest foot. thats mostly in town, towing prolly 2k pounds 3 days a week. this is my first tuned diesel so the power never gets old. once you get ur tunes u will drive it like u stole it.

19 with more high way miles, not city. city will be between 16 and 12, again, depending on driving, truck specs, and load.
