Re: 5mpg 6.0? wtf?

What size tires is he running?

Any tunes?

Any codes?

Too many variables to answer that question.

Stock tire, no tune. Epv code, he cleaned the sensor, was clogged. Under boost code. Hand calculated the mpg.

ive never got that bad even over loading my old dodge lol. I think he has a fuel leak or a bad boost leak just guessing
