No computer avail on my 2006 ST. All done by hand. My 5.9 is pulling 16 average in town 19 highway not towing. 6.7's are obviously worse unfortunately.

do the 5.9's have a dpf that can be removed or is that only on the new 6.7's?

Only the 6.7's. All I have (5.9) is a Cat and it makes about zero difference in power if removed. I had my muffler guy remove it and I ran it for about a week. I noticed ever-so-slightly lower exhaust temps, but no noticeable diff in power or fuel economy. Apparently, the same can not be said for the dpf.

I have a '10 2500 4x4 Mega Cab. Wife and I love the turck. At $4 a gallon for diesel now not all that keen on the milage though. Around town I get about 15 mpg, on the highway somewhere between 19 and 19. Pulling the 5th Wheel I get on avergae 12 mpg. I notice that when I cruise at about 63 mph is when I get my best milage. Pusing 70+ it starts to go down. Haven't done any mods, not sure I want to right now.
