2010 6.4 with an H&S tuner

Hey everybody. I'm looking at buying a '10 F-250 with the dpf delete done with an H&S tuner already on it. 87k miles. I am wanting better fuel economy more than the extra power. Is this a decent set-up for mileage? Thanks ahead of time for your help.

Unfortunately mileage on our tuned 6.4's is still not great. I get my best highway mileage on street tune unloaded. Loaded is a whole different can of worms.

My city driving is around 15-16 tuned and deleted but I have the stock intake so I'm sure I could free up another 1-2mpg with a better intake

I run mine in the HD 300 no power and I get 16 - 18 mpg on highway. Also have an S&B intake

I run the easy tunes, usually on stock and get 15-16 on the highway with a 5" Flo pro and Afe. The constant up and down hills of Nevada doesn't help with the mileage, but deleting the DPF helped out tremendously.

I was getting 12.5 in town and 14-16 highway. I just deleted yesterday and drove it about 200 miles or so. Filled back up at the same station and I clocked 18 mpg. However, since last night, I've romped her a few times to test the tunes. F*** it's fast. But I wasn't looking for fast. Really wasn't looking for mileage either, just the power I knew she had and to get rid of the DPF.

As long as the guy hasn't ragged her out, that's probably a strong truck. For what it's worth, I have 140k miles and my truck drives like a beast.

To answer your question. Yes. Like others said, add a cold air intake and you can see up to 2+mpg increase on top of the improvements.

Then the next question would be ? Do any of you suggest an intake ?
