Blackstone Labs Report

I bought this 2008 F350 Dually back in January with 126,000 miles on it. I put about 3500 on her and drained the oil and sent it into Blackstone and got the report listed on the link below. The truck is 100 percent STOCK and going in for full deletes with an intake and a Livewire 5015 installed next week. I plan to run about 3500-4000 miles once again and do another Blackstone report so I can compare the two. I kind of like what I see in this first report. I think I'll keep her around for a while!!!

Those are pretty damn good based on the mileage all stock. I am interested to see what you get when deleted. I am really surprised the fuel was so low with the DPF on.

I was also concerned about having fuel in my oil. I drove the truck home from Arizona and the regen would do it's thing about every 200+ miles without any kind of abnormal issues, but after reading some of the other threads on non deleted 6.4's there was a concern. The Blackstone report was quite a relief. They do mention in the report to run a bit longer on the oil but I want to do a comparable so I will run it up to 3500 miles or so and drop the oil and come back with a report. The deletes should be done this week. I can't wait!!! I'm not looking for big HP gains, just a longer lived 6.4 and better than 13.7 down the road. My 2003 Cummins was doing about 20-23 MPG so........

is it possible that will lower gearing that theres less fuel being consumed particularly at takeoff and acceleration and ultimately less regens?

I'm no expert on gearing but I would think just the opposite! It does have the 4.30 gear ratio with the tow boss package if that would make a difference??? I've not seen the regen now in nearly a full tank of fuel. IMO every 200 miles is to often for me to see regens. After this week (pending deletes) I won't ever see them again!!!
Seeing this is a dually and all, in my opinion it gets fair MPG at 13.5+. I just want more mpg and a good outlook for the future of the truck.

I hear you on that. I have a f450 with 4.88 gears. I never knew a stock 6.4 could take off so fast haha. Anyways I've gone as far as a tank and a half without a regen.

I didn't realize you had a 450 either. I thought you had a 350.
