Angry Terrible Fuel Mileage on my 2004 LLY

I am having terrible mileage on my 04 LLY. By terrible I mean I am averaging 10.5MPG city. My truck has 341,000km with a LBZ Turbo Mouthpiece, AFE Stage 2 Intake, 4" Turbo Back Exhaust, EGR Delete/Blocker. Fuel Filter is new, the Fuel pressure regulator is new as well.

I need to get this issue dealt with ASAP. I sold my '01 5.3L Gas because I have a camper to haul now. I was getting 500Km to a tank with a 6" Lift and 35" tires with my gas truck, and now with stock size wheels on my '04 LLY I am barely getting 400km to a tank.

Any help is greatly appreciated!! I had a boost leak which I have since fixed, but it only added an extra 10km per tank... There are no other boost leaks.



P.S. Wasn't sure exactly where to post this, re-locate if necessary.

I'd check the air filter, the MAF sensor and for any fuel leaks, see if the injectors have leaking..

What tires and wheels are on it, psi too?

How long have you been checking or how long have you had this truck ?

What is the outside air temp are you idleing a lot and are you using block heater and grille cover for faster warmups?

Air Filter is a brand new AFE Cone filter. I will clean the Mass Air sensor, and see what happens, as well as check for fuel leaks and let you know. I know there are no fuel leaks anywhere outside of the engine, but I will check the injectors. I have a set of 17" Eagle Alloy rims with 245/70R17 I believe. I am running them at 50PSI front and 70PSI rear. I have been using my block heater to speed up the warm-up and I don't idle very much. I have had the truck for 2 months.

Checking for brakes hanging up wouldnt hurt either. Jack up each wheel and see if you can spin the wheel freely. You will have to raise both rear wheels at the same time.

Have return rates checked or check for fuel in oil.
