    I just filled my 26 gallon tank with 25.356 gallons monday with 455.9 miles on the trip all stop and go city traffic for a return of 17.98mpg! I set my programmer on extreme and use diesel kleen every tank... I even gave it some spirited driving quite a few times... I love this truck, the LB7 runs great and has returned me 600miles to a tank(25 gallons usually) on a regular basis of highway driving.

    POST WHY YOU LOVE YOUR LB7!

    Love my LB7, my first Diesel. Plenty of power, decent fuel economy (even with it being $4.65 a gal here now) I wont give it up. Even with all the quirks that have come with it, the cloud of white/blue smoke when I sit and idle, the gauges that sometimes dont wake up, the Xfer case that says its in Neutral.....I still love this truck. My Kids love riding in it, plenty of room for us and some friends and it pulls my toys in style!

    - Its a DURAMAX....what more can I say

    - 22.497 mpg on last long trip (hand calculated)

    - 19.45 mpg around town (hand calculated)

    - Beat a chipped cummins ...stock

    - Beat a chipped powerstroke ...stock

    - Sounds great...even with the muffler

    - The CCSB is awesome, seats 5 comfortably and has the LT package-Bose stereo and steering wheel controls

    - Oh Yeah...The chicks dig it!
