No it wont. Do the deletes, thats the only way to get mileage. When in regen its basically dumping fuel out the tail pipe

Agreed these trucks aren't worth a dime IMO withe the stock exhaust they are basically clogged up and can't breathe in turn kills the efficiency of them unless that stuff is off of there you gotta suffer

First off :welcome: Secondly tell us a little bit about the truck, filling out your signature will help as well. Is the truck auto/manual and what rearend? Stock I saw anywhere from 15 to 18mpg, but thats a QC SB with an auto and 3.73 rearend.

I have a 2011 CTD Mega 4X4 Laramie with "Full Delete" H&S, TV Delete, 5" FLO PRO and the truck is amazing.

I too was getting 12mpg but thats a thing of the past. I am still on my 1st tank after deletes. I am guessing 15-17city.

Sounds like my '11 3500 4x4 dually. I averaged only 10.8 before I did the Mini Maxx, EGR and 5 inch exhaust. I pull on average middle 14 mpg with a heavy foot at times. I am sure if I drove more on the highway than county roads I would see better mileage.

Why do people put on these huge tires, and then complain about their mileage? Just asking... but I have an 01 Off-Road Edition gasser, with 6" lift and 35" tires, and it gets $h!tty gas mileage, but I expect it too!

Sometimes when I get off on an off ramp, let off the pedal and hit the "reset" on the MPG at the same time I get 99.9 MPG according to the readout. Then get 40-50 MPG for the next few blocks. I too am totally stock.
