6.4 MPG Upgrades

Besides DPF/Cat delete, intake, and tuner...what are some other mods that can be done to increase mpg?

smaller tires HAHA, not to much more you can do but a egr delete is always a good thing to install asap

I noticed a rough 1mpg gain after I did my first oil change after purchasing my truck by using Amsoil. I use Amsoil in all my vehicles and I swear by that stuff.

I know you don't want to hear this, I was the same way until recently but the Dpf /cat delete is the only option that will give you SAFE mpg gains. I ran an edge evolution cs with Dpf on and it will eventually clog up. It gave decent mpg gains and great hp but its nothing compared to the big three( Dpf/ cat delete, cold air intake and exhaust). You could try running some power service, or maybe different oil but it didn't work for me
