Miles Per Gallon is currently the biggest topic in the Diesel truck owner community. From over-the-road tractor tailers to daily commuters with mini-diesels every one is noticing the impact of high fuel costs right now.
The most common question today is "HOW CAN I GET BETTER MPGs WITH MY DIESEL?".
The reality is, you're never going to get 30 MPGs with a full-size diesel pickup truck. That doesn't mean there's no hope for better than average though. In real-world conditions, our experience has been that you can expect somewhere in the high-teens for MPGs from a 7,500-8,500 lbs truck.
Here are the most important things you can do to get the best possible MPGs from your Duramax, Cummins, or Power Stroke.
- Fix Mechanical Issues
- Complete Routine Maintenance
- MPG Enhancing Upgrades
