18 mpgs with 33x12.50 Muds Terrains

I have an f350 CC LB 4x4 with a 2" leveling kit and 33x12.50x18 toyo mt's. I dont think I'm asking to much to want to get 18mpgs on a highway trip right now I average 15-16 all the time highway or all around driving. What I want to no is what SCT tunes are you guys running for the best milage.

How fast are you running? Speed makes a huge difference with mileage in these trucks. I get the best mileage (16.5) with the Mild Street Economy tune, but most will say Hybrid Race is the best if you keep your foot out of it.

Same set up as you - but 33x12.50R16 - 55 - 60mph - 18-22 hand calc'd depending on trip.

F-250 SC Long Bed, 4wd, 5R110, 175,000 miles. No tuner, no custom exhaust, stock airbox. zoodad.

Higher the speed - less the mileage.

Winter my mileage is lower - guessing the crappy fuel. I travel 79 miles to work - mostly Rte 4, 495, and 267 in VA - with traffic and RPM's around 1600 - I'm getting around 18. Monday was sweet - no traffic - straight shot - great mileage!

With my xtreme tune im averaging according to my truck mpg meter 15 maybe 16 on the highway on 37's . my average speed is about 60 65. So i may be getting more miles to the gallon or maybe less and i also know that my speedometer is off by 6 miles. so i think that may be a positive factor for me.
