Talking UNDERDRIVe PULLEY!

just got my underdog, underrive pulley and new belt on. it was a pain in the ass to get off with out taking the fan shroud and fan off but we got it when i took off the old one and compared them, it seems way smaller than 20% haha.

if it actually nets a 1-2 MPG gain that fairly substantial. i just did the math really quick and if i could get 1-2 MPG more from my ranger that would equate to about 25-30 more miles per tank of gas and that works out to be approx a $250 savings over a years time, not bad for $80 IMO. Pat, keep us posted on the actual gains.

thats what i figured and thats only IF it does as it claims. also depends on how much you drive, i based those numbers off the mileage i was getting with my ranger when i was driving it every day. im interested in seeing the real world gains, even if it only gets 1 MPG gain its still enough to offset the cost of the pulley in time.
