Default fuel plate for mileage

I have a #0 fuel plate and wonder if it would be better to cut my stock plate
like a #10 plate for mileage and some trailer pulling. Any advise?

your foot is really going to control your milage not the plate. each plate just gives different rack travel. advance your timing and that will give some better mileage.

p.s a #10 is good for pulling as egts are much better.

Default The "Pac-Man" Plate

My local diesel mechanic happens to be good buds with my dad. We own a machine shop accross the street from him and he has us machining his fuel plates for him when they come in. If you've heard of the #100 plate you know what it is already... if not, it's simply a #0 but half way down the flat it has a 45 degree cut back... we machine them with a 30 degree cut back and make what we call the Pac-Man because at the end it looks like a pac-man dude. Slide this plate all the way forward and everyone... not just some... everyone has experienced 5-7 mpg increase over stock. One of the guys in his 2x4 is gettin 27 mpg just around town and still gets 20 with his 5th wheel accross Montana. The plate's pretty simple and puts out a little less power but it's not as harsh on your EGT's as a #0.
