19 MPG after dpf delete on 08 F350 dually

Just did 200 miles over the weekend, avg. speed was 60mph, did 19-20mpg according to the lie o meter, which I kinda believe since for the last 2 years I would see 12-13mpg at the most. I am still hand calculating my first tank and will post the results later.

the truck is a 08 cc dually 4.30 gears,
mods were HS mini max hot tune (250), 4in dp, 5in straight exhaust, afe intake.

From what I have read putting a tuner on makes the lie o meter a lie much more o meter.
