Fuel mileage

Ok this may be a lot of questions but just looking for some experienced answer, I bought an 08 diesel and use it to pull a landscape trailer and total weight is near 5000-6000 pounds including trailer I already did the banks air cooler and six gun tuner, we are only getting 7.5 mpg what should I do? I live in Michigan and am thinking about dpf delete will this help mileage and about how much will it help?

One you got the wrong tuner and did you also do the DPF delete? I'm sure if you use the search function about how to improve mpg you will find several hundreds of threads about that subject.

I would get rid of banks and get a Spartan or H&S tuner and DPF delete and you'll see a big jump in MPG.
