Help for a newbe

Hello all, I am new here and also new to the diesel community. I need some help on selecting a "chip" or "tuner" for my new used truck (08 ford F350 SRW FX4 with a 6.4) to improve my mpg. Currently, I am getting about 11 mpg in the city and about 12.6 to 13.9 Hwy. Just wanted to here what you guys had to say thank you guys so much

I think a free flowing exhaust with a DPF delete would help a lot as well. For a tuner, Spartan seems like the only one worth spending money on, and I'm sure the lower horsepower tunes can be used to improve mileage.
