OK fellas here is the deal.... My boss just bought me a 01 7.3 4x4 6speed and the truck is going to be a pavement queen never pulling anything.... not looking to drop lots of HP into the truck or looking to get gauges simply looking to get the best fuel mileage possible.... what is going to be our best bet for a chip... keep in mind Im a cummins guy, I have no idea what programmers/chips are good for the 7.3's when it comes strickly to fuel mileage....so thanks in advance

Go with either DP Tuner, or a Tony Wildman(Total Diesel Performance) chip. A custom tuned chip will definitely perform wayyyyyyyyyyy better then a TS chip.

I personally would go with Tony Wildman.


And definitely get gauges. At least an EGT gauge. It is definitely a BADDD idea to run a chip without at least an EGT gauge.



Hope that helps man:thumb:

I know how to drive like a gpa... trust me I dont wana ruin a good thing by trashing out a truck that is bought for me....

I'm so glad you didn't finish that sentence with "they taste like chicken" like I was expecting. :hehe::hehe:

Anyway DP or TW will hook you up. Probably an intake and exhaust and a light right foot will help. I use 2-stroke oil in my fuel as an additive, and consistantly get 1-1.5 mpg's better with it rather than without it.

Good Luck and :welcome: to the .org!!
