Seems pretty much par for the course. I'm doing the blue spring update And the atlas 40 ficm tune in the next 2 weeks. Hopefully that will make a little difference. the price of diesel going up the way it is definitely doesn't help

do you have an egr delete? if i hand calculate i can get 20 MPG with mods in sig. even when i had just 4 inch exhaust and intake. i could get 17 if i really tried. the fact that you have a lift and 35s probably does help your mpgs though.

No when delete, I'm in California, so smog is hard enough with cat. Delete. I have to swap out down pipe an install my converter setup every two years as it is, so when delete isn't possible at the time.
