You're only options are OV tune and URD UCON. Both are performance oriented, not so much for a MPG improvement. There's no true way to increase MPG with add ons.
Driving habits is pretty much the only thing. Exhaust and intakes have never made a difference with me either
As well as maf calibrator. It is used to lean things out some to find hidden hp thats normally drowned in fuel.
Don’t add 285/75/16 E tires.
I meant add 285/75/16 E tires.
Thread says “Lower mpg”
Lol. I didn’t notice that
+2 you’ll get less if you keep your foot in it and more if you baby it. You may squeeze a mpg here and there with expensive mods but it really comes down to driving style and maintenance.
If high mpg is what you’re looking for a midsize truck probably isn’t your best option. Probably a Yaris or Prius.
13-14 street with 265/75/16 tires and the turdcharger. Woot!
At least your truck sounds good. Lol
It sounds like it in the videos you’ve posted when you get down on the pedal.
I get 20mpg with a long bed V6 four door (2007) and I don't lead foot it. Automatic on 16's.
18-22 highway on 285s so far...lead foot only when having fun, then I get 14...but that mileage is at 80 psi on E series BFGs.
16 street, 18-20 highway
and we know it moves pretty good
Drive it like there is an egg under the pedal and you don’t want to crush it. Keep your rpms under 2000 on the highway. I can get up to 20 mpg with 285/75/16 load e doing that. 17 mpg in town. Good luck!
To many hills and mountains where I’m at. I’d never make it up them with those driving habits.
Driving habits combined with mods to increase HP/Torque, gear ratios, engine swaps, weight reduction....if you have crappy driving habits, all of that will work against you.
Except weight reduction...that always helps.
