As of late we are getting a lot of people asking how to increase diesel fuel mileage. With diesel over $4.00 a gallon and expected to go well over $5.00 a gallon this summer its no wonder why people are wondering how they can increase diesel fuel mileage. Here are the things we have found that work best to increase diesel fuel mileage:
Diesel Performance Chip: Using a diesel performance chip is one of the easiest ways to increase your diesel fuel mileage, usually with about ten minutes or so spent installing a “chip”, you can increase your fuel economy by 1-5 MPG. Some companies have actually released chips dedicated to increasing diesel fuel mileage including the Edge Mileage Max, Hypertech Max Energy and Quadzilla Max Mileage.
Diesel Performance Intake: Usually if you have already added a chip the next best thing to help increase diesel fuel mileage. Diesel performance intakes allow your engine to breathe easier, which will help increase diesel economy. You will usually see a 1-4 MPG increase. Some of the best known performance intake manufacturers are S&B Filters, AFE and Airaid.
Water Methanol Injection: Now most people would recommend going with an exhaust system for your third mod to increase fuel economy. We have found that when it comes to bang for your buck, the Snow Performance Water Methanol Injection Kits lower exhaust gas tempratures more and increase diesel fuel mileage better than an exhaust system.
