Does he have propane injection and/or nitrous and/or water/meth? These will give you a false sense of how much "fuel" is being used but will cut down on diesel usage.
I personally believe the 98.5-02 vp44 trucks were the most fuel efficient. A buddy of mine was able to get into the 20's (21-24mpg) with the 6speed and 3.55's. That's about the limit without other sources of fuel (in my opinion) and the newer ones don't seem able to produce quite those numbers.
