Thumbs up ZOODAD Milage

I performed the ZOODAD mod five days ago. If I am doing my math right, Which I think I am. I seem to be getting 1.4 more miles to a gallon of diesel.
I'll keep calculating a few more weeks as I know there are other variables. But if this is correct, That 20 minute FREE modification was a good one.

My question is what kind of MPG increase or decrease did any ya'll experience?

Bryan

Five days is really too short a time to compute any difference in mpg. Unless, of course, you drove at least eight hours each day. I did the zoodad mod last year and I'm still not sure that there was any mileage improvement.

I didn't see much, if any -- but it only makes sense that it would allow more cooler air into the intake, resulting in more efficient fuel mileage

I don't know about milage, but my bro-in-law has a 6.0 and his EGT's went from average of 1000 to 800 deg's on the highway so it dropped 200 deg's so I assume the milage went up too
