Yeah when your clearing 250 miles on a just a quarter tank or 425 at a half tank is pretty impressive. My last high mark was done on Edge Comp and +50 HP injectors at 27.2 MPG. The ultimate record is catching the 1997 Dodge 3500 on Diesel Power Magazine that cleared 30 MPG. It can be done it just takes skill driving and know what it likes. For example I've got Jake here and he off and on borrows Thor to drive when his Ford is down. I (myself) can reach 20 to 21 MPG on the over head which hand math turns about 17 to 18 MPG. When Jake borrows the truck he hes get like 17 MPG on the over head but this is actually 14 MPG. This 15% error is from the +50 HP injectors in Thor give this error amount. 

 

On the 2002 Dodge I did pop the injectors high at 320 bar. This improved the spray and make the droplets smaller. Being the pop pressure is high it makes the injector slightly late. So on the Quadzilla I had to add a bit more timing to make up. 

 

425 miles on just a half tank. Just doing rough math here in this photo.  425 / 17.5 = 24.28 MPG.

I don't do much better than that with my 2018 ecodiesel in my normal driving. 24.5 is about normal for me, but strangely haven't had any long highway trips in several months - the major reason I bought the truck!
