Keep in mind that is a 10%+ increase. That's not bad at all.
Great Cummins MPG Guide- I had not seen this before. Lots of good info applicable to any vehicle.
Not to sound critical but you have to realize that you're working against two factors: lots of horsepower and heavier vehicles. You're going to get less gas mileage than a smaller vehicle would get no matter how you go about it. So, IMO, I would just go with more horsepower and get the most out of it. Make it a beast and get a Towncar for regular driving.
I had my 06 Silverado tuned by [MENTION=32828]06MonteSS[/MENTION] and have loved the extra power and even with playing with it more I have noticed a 1-2 mpg improvement. I'm sure if I stopped getting on it so much it would go up another 1-2. Well worth the $480 in my opinion since going from getting 16-17 mpg around town to 19 is nice. I haven't had any long highway drives to see the improvement there yet.
