RE; 05 2500HD 6.0. My last thread talked about power and MPG.I installed the ramair filter kit(K&N n/a yet). Got almost 20MPG 65MPH w/ cruise control, removed the screen from MAS and better throttle response, installed the hypertech programmable comp. chip, better torque around town when pulling my 6800lb toy hauler, no better on the freeway, MPG dropped to 8.5 on aver. Not good. The chip is going back today and trade for exhaust kit. My brother-in-law (1500 w/ 4.8L)did all the same mods and still gets better MPG than the HD and I can't even loose him on the hill climbs. This past weekend I made a 100mile trip w/ trailer from home to barstow ca. the 6.0 at 60MPG never left 3800RPm just to keep that speed. Very bad. At this rate I'll need to change the oil every other trip.
