2005 Ford Powerstroke 6.0 Diesel

Before putting in the fitch catalyst, I was getting 11.5 mpg in town and 17.5 on the highway. Immediately after installation, there was a shocking perfect idle from my diesel engine and it was soooo quiet. That was worth the cost in itself!!! One week after installation, we took an 8 hour trip on the highway. The trip computer in the truck said we were getting 18.5 mpg. At the first fillup, we did the calculation and it was actually 22.4 averaging 70mph here in Texas, with 5mph crosswind!!!

In town I am getting 13.5-14.0 mpg. This will allow a full return on this investment in 4200 miles on my Diesel, thats a savings of almost .07c per mile driven. That takes Diesel prices down .35c/gallon, from $3.89 to $3.54 with the Fitch, if my calculations are correct, thats like a federal tax break!

We have installed this in our new 2008 Escalade and are awaiting a road trip for the findings on the large gas engine of GMs...

Will update again. THANKS!
