Cool after action (repair) report

03 6.0 CC, auto, 4X4, 196,000 4" turbo back, blue spring, k&n filter, egr delete. Several weeks ago I had 3 injectors start missing so I decided to replace all of them with Warren Diesel 155 stock nozzle injectors for 500 for a set of 8, installed a new oil cooler, a blue spring and cleaned the turbo. Jess at Warren told me the injectors would get better mpg. I went on a little road trip this week, mostly interstate with some city driving. I used to get 18 mpg if I was lucky and the stars and moon were aligned just right. had the truck loaded with camping gear, firewood, dog box and dogs, coolers, ect. 22 MPG I almost fainted.

thats filling the tank SLOWLY ,so you dont get foam, till it pours out the spout, then drive it and do the same thing again, till it pours out the spout and see how much fuel it used. Dont know if you can get anymore accurate than that.

Hand calculated, as in doing the math yourself or letting the computer "tell" you how your mileage is?
Because some report mileage by the computer, and it's notorious for being wrong.

the vehicle computer says I get 13.2 mpg and that is running empty on the interstate or pulling my 30' trailer with my bulldozer loaded on, shows the same mpg either way. does anyone know how to calibrate or reset the comp. cause its worthless like it is.

Hold the two buttons at the same time while viewing the MPGs. That's on the overhead trip computer right?
