Thanks!

MPG's:

Interstate: 17

City: 13-14

Towing: 11, this is the most disappointing for me, I was hoping for more.

They say I can pick up a few MPG's with a tune, maybe when the warranty is closer to expiring I'll give it a shot.

Those MPG #'s are about identical to my DMAX ( without a tuner)...the majority of diesels pull these numbers, the exceptions are the ones we hear about on the forums!

Tuner will get you about 2mpg better OR wait to buy a truck from one of the forum members who are getting crazy high MPG's

6.7 Megacab 128,000

Here is my 6.7 megacab with all emissions deleted DPF and EGR removed. 16.9 MPG @ 65 with my 365 SAQ. 22.5 MPG empty. Hand calculated. Well worth the 1300 investment. If anyone wants info on what I did feel free to msg me.

Don't even get me started on road construction and keeping the trailer threaded between those orange cones and barrels

i threaded between them myself for years driving otr, and swore up and down they made them narrow on purpose. now, m-f, i work inside those orange barrels and they dont make the work zone wide enough.
