Re: Mileage Improvement
It is so difficult to consistently fill the tank to the same level on these trucks that you need a run of several tanks to average out the under/overfills.
Any tank that can be filled nearly 5 gallons beyond the first couple of full clicks of the filler nozzle is a huge variable in mileage calculations.
I try and use the same pump each time. Get three "full" clicks and then add 4 more gallons. Really drives my buddies crazy when we compare fuel tank levels after a long tow and their 7.3 is at 1/4 and mine is at 1/2.
