Re: 23 MPG

i have 4.10 gears. which hurts a little. but i want to do 35's too. i hoping it wont hurt it to much. most of my drive is on the highway or back roads. i dont live in a city. and my last tank was 21.7. was thinkin a tonneu cover too. and that should keep my MPG up.

i love how some people are like damn that trucks so big you probably get like 8 mpg and i tell them no i get like 22 or so and there like holy sh*it.

stroker7.3, DP tuner helped so much. last year before the stacks and chip. i was getting like 16-17 and after stacks but before chip was like 17-18. and now the chip and it keeps going up. and i use a little 2 stroke oil.
