Guys are noticing MPG increases from the Diablo and Bullydog tuner. I think the added power makes it easier for the truck to stay in MDS mode. Eliminating the clutch driven fan while adding a 180 thermostat then setting the e fan temp to 200 degrees can help on the highway. If you're not running A/C the fan will never come on while moving.
Are the tuners voiding the warranty though?
Yea I saw the diablo tuner on AA, unless it was increasing the mpg by 7-10 on the highway, i can't see spending $600.

Yea i've heard about blocking the air flowing through the grill, wouldn't you need a hood to have vents in it at that point so the engine cavity doesn't get too hot?
