What do your diesels get for fuel mileage?

My stock 2010 with 6.7, with a cold air intake just got between 16-17L per 100km on my trip up to the cariboo, in town its usually between 19-20L

:mad:

That's going off the onboard computer

A buddy of mine with all the deletes says he gets about an extra 200 km out of a tank

im looking at a 2012. new but considered used as it had a $2000 damage during shipping. less taxes. Its an SLT with the nav system display, roof marker lights, sunroof . no leather. and 6spd manual. a nice looking truck for $51,000

I took it for a night. put 170km on it. avg 16.1l / 100km on the display.

mind you, because of thefts, they remove the cats until the truck is sold. so Im not sure how that will affect things when its hooked up.

Brand spanking new my early '04 (305-555) got ~19 on the freeway. After about 6 months or so it went down to 17-18 freeway and 14-15 around town. Then the muffler fell off and things went back up to ~19 freeway and 17 around town.

Looked down the stock muffler and found the baffles plugged up with carbon. Got an aftermarket mprb system after that

Went out to Manitoba couple years ago, got fairly consistent in the 15mpg range with a 10' camper on at 100kmh (straight piped)

Tell them you want the straight piece they use to replace the cat when you buy it...

i would, but there isn't a piece. there is nothing there. sounds kinda cool. and no cel light. but im sure it wouldn't be good for the engine for a prolonged time.

no cat won`t hurt the engine any.
Truck body may not like the exhaust being dumped under it. You may also have issues with carbon monoxide getting into the cab depending where it comes out.

You may also have a particulate filter, that is acting like a bit of a muffler. Delete that piece and watch the CEL light up...

The cat is directly after the manifold, so its running open manifold. That would sound pretty cool, I'm surprized the dealer would let you take it like that.

if I think there is a horsepower difference between the standard and auto trucks. Not sure what year that first started with.
Kootneycat made some reference to that when he got his truck if I recall correctly...

lol, my 96 12 valve got 12l/100kms on highway hailing or empty, had 4" strait-pipe and fuel plate fully opened. only thing that effected it was speed i was going the 4.10 gearing sure ate more fuel if ya went much over 110 as rpm was to high, didnt matter what was in it.

Hell I got 15l/100 kms leaking fuel! tell me how all the computers and efficiency stuff is better for the environment, I got better millage then the new ones pissing out a steady stream of fuel.
