Newbie in AZ.

Hi, this is my first diesel, its an 02 (7.3) crew 4X basically stock for now,Grill, air bags (rear), tri gauge pod, Leveling kit, ARE filter and 295 X 16 rubber. My big thing is trying to get MPG out it. Seems like everyones getting better MPG than I am? Im averaging 16-17 on the Hwy driving miss daisy!! Is it true that some 7.3's are pulling 20 or better?? How?? I was thinking about going for a power module to go for to try to get MPG and yes power would be nice. Would exhaust also help with my quest? Thanks.

Welcome Jambo! Tuner's can do wonders on the MPG if you can keep your foot out of it........I can't seem to do that though.
You AZ guys are making a run at us TX guys in the members chase!

Welcome to the forum man...

As far as your MPG, most claiming 20 are full of it.....17 is about right for your truck....
