Those of you that have put a turbo on your NA engines, how much, if any, MPG did you gain? I dropped 4mpg from my normal driving into a 20mph headwind today, trying to get a little more consistent fuel consumption. The 93 Cummins I had rarely varied more than 2mpg, regardless of speed or weather

I bought my '91 F250 new, suffered with the lack of towing power for 30,000 miles then put an ATS turbo on. I mainly pull a 3 horse Charmac gooseneck. With accurate fuel mileage checks, towing or not towing, no head or tailwind, 100% highway driving, I noticed no fuel mileage difference after installing the turbo kit. Got 249,000 miles on it now.
On Edit: I've still got all ATS Turbo Company's literature from back in the day and they make no increased mileage claims at all. Unlike one of their competitors who have always claimed their kits will make your truck do everything but fly through the air.
