New 2013 6.7 best mpg?

Finally bought a new 6.7 and i was wondering if anyone had some insight on how to get the best mileage possible? Not considering a programmer/exhaust yet but what are some things i can do to squeeze out the best milage.

Its all how you drive it. Just turned 1800 miles with mine.
Went for a trip out to the Cape this passed weekend toped off and reset mpg. 300 miles round trip 20.0 on the gage. topped off when we got back and did the math 19.9. Computer is dead on.
Its also nice that you can top off the tank in a few clicks.

Spend $8000 lowering it, and another $4000 in custom made super skinny wheels with some 235 or 245 wide tires.

Use Cruise Control whenever possible.

I find cruise control runs higher PSI? I don't know why it does, but I get better MPG without cruise control...

If you can manage to keep your boost below 5 PSI, you get great MPG!

Remember 55 mph speed limits? No doubt, speed kills mileage. I get my best mpg at 62 in the right lane. 19 mpg best highway so far. Average driving is 14.
