i get 10 to 12 towing, 14 or so around town and 20 on the hiway. im driving a 08 duramax 2wd, which isnt what you were looking for. but im getting the same empty miles as my 05 6.0 chebbie gasser was. i was getting 6 to 7 tow mileage from the gasser too. nobody is getting spectacular fuel economy with any of the big 3 heavy (diesel) pickups. doubtful the gassers are getting any better mileage either.

Tell the dealer that you'll take the truck based on his numbers with the condition that if it doesn't produce you will bring it back and he will do the delete on his dime with full warranty.

The problem with comparing mileage from Fuelly is you have no idea if any of them trucks have been modded.

people dont buy deisels for their economy even tho they seem to get better towing mileage than their gasser counterpart. they are bought so that you can come up to a mountain or big hill you know you will be able to flatten it. they are a bit exspensive to use as an everyday driver if your just running out for milk and bread.

Yeah I know I was just curious.

I'll find out soon enough. Just bought a 2012 dodge 2500 Cummings high output. Pick it up Monday. So we will see.

As far as voiding the warrantee, a cold air I take system will give you a little more HP and torque , which I know I won't need. It will also give 1-2 mpg extra, and it dose not void the warrantee, however I am not sure about the performance tuners. I have heard they do not void your warrantee, and hat any mod you do to the engine has to be directly related to a failure for some thing not to be covered, so I.l keep looking into it..

Don't expect much other than improved throttle response, a tune will do the rest.

I have a 2010 2500 and put a cold air intake and bully dog tuner on, I can really feel the difference when I take the tuner off and set it back to factory. And from what I understand is if anything is found that changed the settings of the comp will void your warranty. So be careful, I would still recommend the tuner! Love it

Frank,


Did you get any improvement in MPG?

Which cold air intake did you go with?

Your MPG's will get worse because at WOT the sound will be awesome, so in city driving forget about mpgs and impress the locals

I put an Injen CAI and Buddy Club Dual cat back with test pipe (Cat delete), on my Honda S2000 and at 9000rpm......... Man did that wake the neighbors (and kill a few Penguins), Injen claimed a 12hp inc I noticed a definite improvement especially in stop start driving, response was better, without the CAI in hot weather it traffic it used to bog.
