Just ordered a php ficm tuner

In hopes of getting my 19mpg back I had when I got the truck, I'm now at 12mpg. I'll prolly run atlas 40 and looney wild, I guess we'll see if it helps.

Seems the more mods I put on my truck the lower my milage gets also, but I'm pretty sure it's because I step on the skinny pedal more.

The more mods I did to mine the better my mileage got. For instance when we bought the truck we were told it averages 18 mpg. WRONG!!! More like 10-12 on a good week. Then I got new tires, oil cooler kit, flushed the cooling system and added CAT EC-1 ELC, replaced leaking egr delete, retuned with new custom tunes and added a coolant filter. (Yes I know most of that is preventative maintenance and repairs) Mileage increased ever so slightly to 14-15 average after that repair.

Then it sprung a HPO leak. Ended up replacing all stand pipes, dummy plugs, STC fitting, IPR valve and a brand new HPOP. Truck ran like a top again and increased the mileage just a tad more to typically just under 16 mpg all the time.

Next blew the head gaskets in late spring. So it sat parked for a while. Did new head gaskets, studs, new 175cc injectors, updated standpipes and dummy plugs (old-new ones weren't updated), updated turbo oil feed and drain tubes, ported rockers, new push rods, new glow plug harnesses, fixed leaking egr delete AGAIN (CHITTY SINISTER KIT), new power steering pump, switched to Rotella T6 Full Synthetic oil, BPD 4 Phase FICM, changed all filters (both fuel filters and oil filter) and retuned again for the new injectors and now it's averaging just over 19 mpg combined when I am not beating the chit out of it.

Here soon I'll be adding a new turbo and installing my BPD oil cooler kit. I'll keep you updated lol.

Yea mine has: at 40,000 miles on the new long block,i did studs,new hpop, turbo lines, oil cooler cover, egr delete, cleaned turbo, cleaned intake, cleaned ebp sensor, ipr remote oil cooler, ipr coolant filter and new tunes. It already had air raid filter in the stock box w/zoodad, dual 6" exhaust with no cat, 4.10 gear, and dj's tunes.
Nothing changes mpg no matter how I drive or what I tow its still 12 mpg.
