20 mpg w/ 200's!!!

2906 49
i got a reather plesant suprise today when i filled up.

i did 510.1 miles of mixed highway/city driving, and put 25.421 gals in my tank.

for those of you who dont have a calculator handy....

510.1/ 25.421= 20.066 mpg :drool2:

this is my best tank (so far) with the new injectors. despite quite a few rips and turning 35's. (yes my speedo is calibrated)

With my 99 just running the juice on 6 all the time, I was getting about 16mpg after the new injection pump, before the new injection pump i was at 18-19mpg. I think each truck can be a lot different, even with the same basic setup.

2 weeks ago, I put 480 highway miles on a tank and still had 1/4 of a tank left. I filled up and my fuel milage was 22.4 mpg, That was with my Drag Comp on 5x5 at all times. I was very pleased....lol!!

just got back from a 500 mile trip. ended up getting 23 mpg. was my first time keeping my edge juice on 5x5 for the whole tank starting from fill up. All of the driving was highway. 55mph just under 2k rpm with 4.10s on a dually. not too shabby. im hoping for even better mileage when i go to 265s and 3.55s srw. and diesel is now cheaper then gas! awesome
