    The local "Co-op" is cheapest, but you must have a "tax" card. It lowers or removes taxes on ag products.
    Another "gummint" gimmick! 😖
    Not worth the hassle and trouble. And once it’s tuned properly it will probably do just a little bit better than my old gas burner. They can cruise at 75 on the interstate and do just as well if not better than a gas burner. Another friend of mine who has stock tires but everything else gets 20-25 mpg depending on how fast he wants to go.

      When we bought our '06, we left it stock and would get 24 to 26 mpg and didn't require DEF.
      Pretty good mileage for a 1 ton dually!
      My old '01 still gets 15 to 17 mph with 405K miles. Needs to have valves run but would still probably get 18 to 20 mpg.
      Not bad for a 22 year old vehicle with that many miles! 😉

      It's right at 600 miles to the kid's house in s. Texas. Since the truck IS "tired iron", we set the cruise at 65mph and she never bobbles. Just cruises right along easily.

        P.S. - 'dawg, if you're mechanically gifted enough and computer savvy enough to make those "upgrades", I admire you!
        (...and they are INDEED upgrades!)
        😁

          I have the mechanical side the computer you buy you add its done. I just don’t have time. I have a friend who is a powerstroke tech for a dealer he’s fixing to strike out on his own. His truck has 388,000 miles on it he knows his way around powerstroke. Figure he’s been swinging wrenches on them since they first came out his dad always owned one he in the dirt businesse. And he has owned one personally for about 20 years well his first truck when he was 16 was 7.3 powerstroke. Between my money and his time I will get this truck to where I want it. And someday it will be tired iron also.
