Hello All,
I have a 02 F350 Dually. The main reason I joined this forum was to ask this question, (although I'm sure i'll have more).
I am averaging roughly 6-8 MPG on the highway and want to know what are the first things I could do to try to correct this. I am pretty sure I should be getting a little better than that.
I have an Edge Juice with Attitude monitor, Intake and 4" full dual exhaust. I also have 34" TSL's. Those are the the only things i think would affect mileage. Does anyone have any idea's on how i can improve this mileage, or maybe what might be wrong with this truck?
I dont drive this truck too often for this reason and would like to try something to make it a little better?

Those 34" tsl's are heavy and you have 6 of them. My girlfriend has almost the exact same setup... 03 F350 dually with 35" A't's and M'ts on it... with the edge evo. She's getting about 10mpg... mostly secondary roads though. She does a little better on the hwy.

BTW... you're really close to the guy called Jswland (sp?)... his name is Justin....

ps... welcome!

Welcome to the .org!!

Those are some pretty large meats and they are probably affecing you more than you think... also, is that mpg by the overhead console (if you have one) or hand calculated? With a programmer/chip/tuner, supposedly it reads incorrectly.

Thanks for everyone's input. I'll have to play around with it and see what happens..
