Fuel Savers for your Diesel Truck

“What can I do to get better fuel economy from my truck?" This is a question we hear countless times a day here at Thoroughbred Diesel. Fortunately, there is any easy answer! Basically there are three options for today's modern diesel trucks; add a programmer (or module), install an air-intake system or replace your stock exhaust. These are the “big three" upgrades recommended to increase efficiency and ultimately, increase fuel economy. Below are a few links to these three products to determine what will work best for your truck and wallet!

Programmers header

Changing your trucks tuning is by far going be your biggest bang for your buck when looking to increase the fuel economy of your truck. This is a plug in and go kind of option.

We are authorized dealer of Bully Dog, Edge Products, Diablosport, Superchips Inc, Hypertech, PPE, TS Performance, SCT, MADS Electronics, Blixton, ATS Diesel Performance, Pro Comp, Jet, and BD Diesel Performance. We offer the best deals on truck programmers from these manufactures.

This will increase your trucks efficiency and is always recommended when installing a programmer. An exhaust install will require about two hours but is well worth the money considering how much you will save at the pump! Diesel Exhausts

Air intakes will help your turbo spool up quicker and help decrease your Exhaust Gas Temperatures (EGT's ). Quicker turbo spool up means less bottom end lag and again, increased efficiency. This option will require about an hour to install but again, it is worth the time if you want to beat rising fuel costs.

If you are looking to increase the fuel economy of your diesel truck, you should start with these three product lines. Each truck is different and your results will vary. However, if your truck is loaded or unloaded, towing or not, these products will help save you money and who doesn't want that!
