Default Banks IQ, Bully Dog PMT??? Fuel economy

I am looking to increase my fuel economy, as I am now driving 3-4000 miles/month in my '03 CTD (120,000 miles). I want to drive this thing for a long time, so I don't want to decrease the life of my motor or trans. I need a set of gauges, so I figured the Banks IQ with the six gun tuner or the bully dog PMT would get it done in one shot. Anyone have any experience with these products?

Welcome to the site, that's alot of mileage per month. You can also save $$ on changing over to Amsoil synthetic motor oil (3x OEM drain intervals) or even a bypass system and just change your filters and top off with make up oil. Before trading my 02 in with bypass system I went 5 years and 70,000 miles with just changing the filters and topping off. When I traded the truck in the oil analysis showed the oil was still good.

I don't think you will find a lot of Banks fans out there, no experience with them myself, but most people sya that they are overpriced and overpromised.

If durability and long life's safty is your thing, then Banks is the sure shot.

It is kind of pricy, but of course, there is a price for everything in life!
