Default Better mileage

Is there any sure way to get better mileage from a 2006 Ram 2500 Diesel that is still in warranty

Put it on a trailer and tow it to where you are going...

What mileage are you currently getting? What size tires do you have? Which transmission? etc

A bed cover will help. A AFE cold air intake will help.

I would have to ask if you have set the valves.
if so, try a little tighter. like .008 intake and .015 exhaust.
Your mileage isn't that bad.

IF you are willing to spend some money on it, a camshaft change could be worth it. Stock cam is far too small.
