That's about the mpg I get with my stock 4x4 truck. If I keep my foot out of it I will get above 16 mpg.

From memory you were getting pretty consistent MPG close to 18 before the mod. Now it seems like your mileage keeps dropping with or without it. Could it just be the colder weather? I've never paid attention to my diesels' MPG to know how their affected. Nice to see somewhat of a confirmation that the mod doesn't impact fuel economy.

Timmy, any more MPG updates? I'm planning a trip somewhat soon and I'm gonna check mine to see what it does.

Brokestroke; any updates on your set-up?

Yo..nah, not since the last round. With a crazy month, i was just tosding cheeze into the tank to get goin..now that holiday lights are done, I DID top off this morning and reset the tripometer..will report when empty...side note though, for some ungodly reason, the truck has been feeling like it gots a permanent hot dose stuck in the air stream. She's hasnt felt this peppy in a LOOOONNNGGG time..not sure what gives(its why the mpg watch now)
