I have asked for help on this subject before, but only received
replies that suggested driving about 63 miles per hour. That's
helpful, but I'm looking for a little more. I'm thinking I need to
be a little more specific, so here it goes: Does anyone have any
experience with diesel engine kits that advance fuel economy such as
Camping World advertises with the Banks PowePacks? We have 2004
Monaco Windsor with 400 hp cummings.

I have a Banks system on my truck. I use it as a tow vehicle. It is now a tote vehicle. I carry a Lance camper.
Banks systems are great! They are engineered as a complete system and perform as advertised.
I have had this system on my truck since new and I now have over 110,000 miles on the truck.
That's the good news.
The bad news? The after market Customer Service "stinks on ice"! It is absolutely terrible and has not improved in the five years that I purchsed my system. Even after personal e-mail from Gail Banks. So go ahead a buy the system and hope that no component will break.
p.s. I got 0 mpg improvement. With the extra HP I can't keep my foot out of the accelerator. You may find it is the same.
