Default Hell has frozen over

I managed to get over 17 mpg in my truck on the last tank. 17.5 to be exact.

The 3 liter engine is worthless. No more power than the 4cy and worse fuel economy than your 4.0.

Default Re: Hell has frozen over

I got 21 on mine.. Only 19.7 on the last tank though. I drove harder and had a little weight.

This tank I had even more weight and drove it really hard. Guessing it'll be about 17-18. If I cruised real slow on the hwy only I could probably get 22+.

Don't jack rabbit start/stop. That makes the biggest difference.

The thing is though about 5:30 when everyone is leaving work everyone around you is burning rubber. It makes it hard to drive easy.

The last tank I got 16 MPG. Could it get any better? Maybe if I wasn't so throttle happy all the time. I'm still getting used to the touchy gas pedal.

I used to push 19 with stock 245/75s but now im lucky to see 16 with 33/12.50s

I hope to get my fuel economy tune here soon and then I might be able to afford to go to work again.... But then again I have a 4.0


my old 3.slo 2wd Manual I got 21 and 18 when I would push her hard
