    Mileage Increase Recommendations

    I currently run a bully dog power pup, 4" magnaflow exhaust with no muffler nor cat, and a kn intake system and i am really debating on ditching my power pup for another tuner that might help my mileage out a little more, if any one has any suggestions on what might work or has worked for you i would really appreciate some feedback, thanx alot.

    In case we find ourselves starting to believe all the anti-American sentiment and negativity, we should remember England 's Prime Minister Tony Blair's words during a recent interview. When asked by one of his Parliament members why he believes so much in America , he said:
    "A simple way to take measure of a country is to look at how many want in... And how many want out." Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you:
    1. Jesus Christ
    2. The American G. I.
    One died for your soul, the other for your freedom.

    SCT X3 from Raul with I.D. tunes!!!

    One the way back from the SoCaps meeting the other day (110 miles in the rain for me), I got 20.8 (Lie-O-Meter) MPGs at 65-70 mph. My lie-o-meter is pretty close based on previous calculations. Thats up from about 16.5 when my truck was stock.

    04 F250 FX4 6.0 Lariat
    SCT (custom tunes by Eric at I.D.)
    Zoodad, Intake, and 4" T-back exhaust
    05+ Elbow with Butterfly removed
    Dieselsite coolant filtration system
    DC Power 250 Amp XP Alternator
    B&W gooseneck set-up and Air bags

    Mods to come:
    Mag-Hytech rear diff cover - It's at home waiting!
    Custom rear bump mod!
    Upgraded brakes
    Dieselsite tranny filtration system
    EGR cooler delete (when it's time)
