Default How to fix a 6.0 powerstroke

Here's my mileage log

MPG
DateOdometer Miles Gallons M.P.G Notes
9/27/2013198606
10/10/2013199209 603 31.55619.10888579 Breaking the truck in

I was pleasantly surprised about the 22.2 Mpg. I feel there are 4 reasons I am getting such great mpg

1. I have the timing advanced and with the big bowl pistons and stock injectors the spray is still hitting within the bowl.

2. I have a manual with 3.54 I believe

3. I had an head plate put on the engine block before honing the bores

4. I have a huge exhaust housing which sucks for spool up time but is great for mpgs (21cm^2)
