To OP. I don't know any newer trucks that get better mileage than I get. That doesn't mean they can't or don't, the peeps I know who have them arnt even close. I read the thread Steve posted and its quite impressive. As of right now, I can do over 800 plus miles per tank at 55mph easy. Keys to this,
Tire pressure I. E. Max the fronts, at least 65min. Rear.
Weight, with my 2wd, qc sb, with weight removed, I'm at 5950lbs. with a 1/4 tank of fuel.
Speed, anything over 60mph is killing you.
From a stop, never go over 6/8 pounds of boost, ever.
Tuning, fo sho, it truly does help tons, I just have a old smarty jr set on kill( max on all settings except torque management). Just abideing by those will help your mileage YUGE. From there, its the devil in the details like Steve has done exceptionally well.
