Default mileage

I was getting 16.7 mpg on the highway. Put a k+n cai, a gf chip and a bakflip tonneau cover. I jumped to a high of 22.5 on the highway.
I am having a flowmaster 40 put in tomorrow, hope I get a little better, but I'm happy.
Took my cover off for a week, dropped down to 18.5 on the highway. Its back on and its going to stay on.
