DRAM1500 is on a distinguished road
Default Better MPG

All Synthetic fluids in everything.
E3 Plugs.
MSD Coil, much hotter more powerful spark.
New MSD Wires.
Cold air intake, DIY or name brand, just use K&N filter.
Headers & dual exhaust. I wrap my headers.
Remove engine fan & replace with dual electrical fans. gives more HP too.
I replaced bearings with best available for less rolling resistance.
I inflate my 285/75/16's to 48LBS and rotate every 4K.
Take out & clean injectors or have an injector cleaning done professionally.
Remove ALL extra & not needed weight.
Easy on gas pedal, manuals are better on gas.
Coast on hills, coming up to red lights/stop signs, IN Neutral.
I changed my 5.9 to a 5.2 & MPG is WAY better.
Use AC only if absolutely necessary.

I live in Rural area east of Toronto and have many times turned engine off and coasted down large hills for up to 7.5K or 4.5 miles.

MPG stays around 19-21 depending on how much I HyperMile
