You can put a K & air filter on and you will get a little better but not too much. I own a 2006 mega cab also and they just don't get the best gas mileage.

If you don't mind me asking.. What do you get in yours? is yours gas or diesel?

Mine is gas also, I average around 12 mpg. It is not great, especially if you are in town.

Best in advice is to take off slowly and not be punching it...The easier you drive it the better mpg you will get....lol

Just an air filter won't do anything first off. If you put a cold air intake along with a good cat back exhaust system you'll see some better numbers, I have a 2012 and got about 11mpg before and now i am getting 13-14mpg they do help

What does a Cat Back Exhaust run price wise? This is my 1st truck.. So I'm still learning?

If you weigh it out - would the exhaust system and the Cold air intake justify the gas savings? There's also the option of a splitter (over and under gear box) but really, if you want fuel mileage buy a small car.
