My XLT didn't come with it either, I paid a lot of money and spent a lot of time adding one to my '04 so it could lie to me daily

Guess on my next trip your way I'll have to reset the meter at Gov't Camp and check it when I get to Sandy. Probably the best mileage I'll ever see.

Scan gauge doesnt mean anything to me. Unless it is set up exactly correct it will also be off. Just out the box it wont be correct. I use one in my 04, and prior to setting it up, it would tell me im averaging 22+. Once i set it up it says about 18 and hand calc is consistent 17. This is a 2wd with atlas40 on it. The other issue i see is unless you have upgraded gearing to match the new tire size, you need to take into account the extra miles driven with larger tires. With 38's it was about 7 miles per 50 driven. Now with 40's its 10. And one other thing, when u say 75 is that the speedo speed or actual? At 75 in my 03 is about 92mph on GPS.

Im not saying you may be getting better mileage than i with different tuning, but if youre truley getting over 20 with it then i would love a build list so i can copy it. You definitely have a unicorn.

I thought the oem pumps were pretty good on these trucks? I know the old style on the 7.3 wasnt good. Got about a year at a time out of them running 38's on that old truck. But my 03 has had 40's for a few years and its been good. Even with 260k on the og pump. Id either go back oem or see whats offered when i go a hydro assist steering system. Sometimes they offer upgraded pumps so may be worth looking that way.
As far as sending unit i also need one ws my gauge reads full till im at a half tank and is empty when the gauge reads half. Found out the hard way when i got the truck. Lol

On my '05 the dash says 16 to 16.1, hand calculated it's about 15. I've seen a max of 16 but that was as we were going 60 mph on dead flat ground for what seemed like ever lol but it's also on 35's and at that time I had a ton of stuff in the truck.

The Prius is currently showing 48.8, heck even at 40 mpg I'm happy lol but I doubt I'll actually calculate it.

Let me put it this way. I'm an engineer that grew up in a shop, so I can assure that I'm not some rookie taking a stab in the dark and assuming that all of my electronics are spot on. One going thing here that I've noticed is that everyone seems to doubt anyone else's experience here... Maybe it's because I didn't write a dissertation to explain my process or my experience, but I'm not going to. I didn't figure this would create such a freaking uproar. Simply put, I've driving the same distance week to week for 5 years now, and my fuel consumption has dropped to half of what it was with some of my recent updates. I'd say a have a fairly good constant to compare my findings to. Facts are facts, I'm putting in half the fuel is was prior, I fill up every week at the same station, at the same time, and it's generally the same amount. So, whether anyone wants to believe that I'm having success, I don't care; my wallet gets the win as well as my piece of mind. With that said, my ScanGauge is set up properly and it accounts for my tires. I figured I'd have a little more promotions of celebration vs all of the hate, negativity, and belittling that I'm experiencing currently. My mistake for ever posting a picture of my lieometer that was actually representing a fairly accurate, but not perfect calculation of my mpg.

You're talking about a 9k+ lbs truck with a 6.0 V8, not just stock but lifted on 37's that's probably not highway tread and you're talking about 75 mph so you're well over 2k RPM. I don't believe for a second you get 26 MPG, I'd have a hard time even looking at 16 tbh but everyone believes what they believe.

I understand your thought, but I was getting 16 highway before I ever studded my truck or made major updates. At 75 my rpms are running closer to 1800... Believe what you want.

Wow bro, calm down here. Im sorry if you feel im being negative or putting you down, that wasnt any intention on my part. Im stating that a 6.0 typically wont get that kind of mileage in stock form on a hot tune, yet alone with a lift and large tires. Sure there is tons of variables with all our experiences. But im sure we all have had enough seat time in our trucks to get an idea of its average mpg. So when someone posts up 26mpg at highways speeds in a lifted truck its gonna create a debate for sure. I thought my lowered 2wd was doing above average getting 17 on the highway till your post. I travel at 80-85 for 50 miles to and from town on flat ground when calculating my mileage. Not much town driving. So as i said before, whatever you have done that nets those results, id like to replicate it because getting 10mpg at best sucks.

Have a good day brother, dont sweat our opinions too much, lol.
