The turbos are working when towing and that sucks the gas mileage. If my drive to Glamis and to riding areas was completely flat I am sure the mileage would improve. Also going between 55-60mph would improve the mileage. When I am not towing I average 19 mpg between city and freeway driving. All highway driving is around 20-21mph depending how fast I drive. I made sure to get the big fuel tank so I can tow farther distances without filling up. The 36 gallon tank is nice.I'm getting better mileage Ca to Montana with a 20' x 8.5 and the x3 in my GMC 6.2... that doesn't seem right
I only get 21 with a tailwind doing 60. Lol I'm looking to get a big tank installed. Gm stock shorted tanks suckThe turbos are working when towing and that sucks the gas mileage.

I had them powder coated Can Am Red to match the springs, but they probably would have looked better matching the red radius rods in the back.. Front Axles will match the S3 Arms that will also be Can Am Red.Fancy!!!! Need to paint the tuner axles red.
You need to install the propane injection to boost up your MPG. Stay with the small jet for the extra fuel MPG. I ran it on my 2000 F350 with the six speed manual. I put a very hard 150K miles on it with no motor issues, but that 2000-2002 7.3 was they strongest they every built. I was running the max propane you could drill the jet out to. 550HP with 1100 LB Torque. I was getting 17MPG towing on I5 with GVW at 20,000 and running 42 inch tires. I would also go through the 10LB propane tank within 1500 miles less if running it really hard. My propane was set up for MAX HP not for best MPG. The only issue i had with the power is it went thru my first 2 sets of tires within 10K miles. The Military 42 inch by 20 tire was the only one that would hold up.I get about 9 MPG towing my 40' toy hauler with my F250 4x4 diesel!
Any Diesel will work with it as it injects into the airbox. I think mine was from ATS. I will do a search and see whats out there now as i did it in 2000. With the propane amount i was dumping in it was amazing and could go thru the gears as fast as I could shift it. When pulling a steep hill loaded if you needed to shift down i could flip the switch pull that same gear and then shift up to the next gear if i could make the corners at that speed. lol You wouldnt ever want to run the amount i was as everyone said it was not possible without blowing up the motor. They were wrong for my case, but probably not for most cases.Hmmm I have not even heard of propane injection on a Diesel? I don't even know if the 6.7 is made to work with it.
There is kits out. but i dont know if it will work as well on the new smog engines as it did on mine. I probably should've researched the new engines before I brought it up as many are scared of it, so probably better just forget I brought it up. The amount of liquid propane I was running shouldn't have been possible. My EGT would stay the same climbing the hills without shifting down if i kept throttle at same setting, but I had so much more power i could run the EGT well beyond what it ever should be. I would only do that Briefly. I have a lot of stories I could tell about how fast i could pull a hill pulling GVW of 20K plus, but no one would ever believe it, so I won't.Hmmm I have not even heard of propane injection on a Diesel?

I get the same pulling my tractor or raptor 5th wheel. 7.3l I can go up any mountain at 50mph. Don't have brakes to handle going down the other side any faster... its my work truck.My truck certainly does not lack power as in it's stock it is 400 HP and 850#s of torque. What it does lack is fuel efficiently. Based on my research on the 6.7 , it would take a lot of miles on the road to recoup the cost to gain a few MPG. There is the legality aspect of it to from the smog police lol.
let me know when you remember the other one i need. ThanksThat is worth the wait. I have that tool set up and it is very handy. You will still need to add some additional sockets. Need the socket that fits the axle nut and there was one other that slips my memory.
