HA! So true. Me and my friend both have a V10, the salesman told him, "It will pull the underwear off Superman, but it wont pass a gas station."
Never heard that one. But sooo true.

In order to lose something, you had to have in the first place. Right??
So you only did exhaust and intake air and a chip and picked up 8 MPG??? Nearly doubling your mileage???? I don't know how that is possible. Are you calculating your mileage over many tanks of gas or using the WRONGOMETER on the overhead console? No change in tire size or gears? Is this a single 5" exhaust? What headers?? I would like to do some more research on this..
Thanks for more info. in advance...
I've got 18+ mpg's in my 09, downhill with a 25mph tailwind...........
My question again is: is this on ALL GASOLINE or a mix.
When my 02' F-250 super crew was at about 36K I did a road trip from Florida to Upstate NY. and back. Watched the mileage on each tank full and I once put 100% gas in the tank and got a bit over 16 MPG from that tank. That was all highway with the cruise on around 75 MPH. It is hard to find 100% gas around my home and I do a ton of stop and go and AC on I see a usual 10.6 MPG. AC off = 11.6... Mine is 2wd. Stock everything with Michelins rock hard.
I found a trick that really helped my mileage, I moved out of a hilly area to a flatter area! Until Last year, I lived in NorCal right on the coast were it always seemed I was traveling uphill and my truck got 11 or so. Now I live in Southern Oregon and my truck will get 14-15+ every day. Now three mpg may not seem like a huge deal, but consider it's about 20% better mileage and that IS a big deal. Plus I pay about 10% less per gallon. My point ( I do have one) is that like I've always suspected, the area you drive the truck and the speed you drive GREATLY affect the MPG's your gonna get. BTW, one of the guys I work with has a '12 Dodge Ram with the 6.7 and his gets 14 mpg.
