6.0 L PSD Fuel milage

Thought I'd try and get some data on fuel economy for the 6 L, An article in Motortrend had it at 16.6 mpg. Please be accurate and report configuration changes that would affect mileage only (tires, chips, intake etc)

I went with 15 - 16 also because that IS what I get around town... About 15 in the summer with the A/C blowing and about 15.5 in the winter.... Don't know the highway mileage because the only longer trips I take are pulling the 5th wheel (at about 18,000 - 19,000 lbs gross combined)... When towing the worst I've gotten is 12.9 and that had it's share of uphill at 60 and 65 mph so I'm not complaining....

I get around 15 w/ the intake, 4" exhaust, and the Juice on the HOT setting. I seem to get a little less when I romp on it more than not, but I can understand why...LOL!!
