I cant get much better 18 or so highway under at 65. Anything over 65 it drops well down.

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.

Diesel power did an article on this. They found no improvement in mpg . I think it was in the Aug.
Good luck on mpg.
