The story of my leaking injectors...

Hey guys,
It's been awhile, but long story short, after purchasing tuning and running the living H*ll out of the truck, the injectors started to go. being a broke college kid, I didnt get to fixing it until earlier this week.
I had been getting 18's and 19's, and even had one pair of tanks break the 20 mark... then the injectors started going downhill...
Stock AB's at 279K miles, with tuning, and I was lucky to average more than 7 or 8 mpg.
Recently I replaced those with a nice set of low mileage AD's in great shape.
and I learned something-
when your injectors are going out and you're trying to make them live, you learn how to drive very very very lightly.
First two tanks from the new injectors? 22.1 mpg at about 75% hwy, 25% backroads/city/traffic.

I guess what i'm saying is, if you can, replace your injectors as soon as they start to go... but if not, enjoy the relearning process...

96 Powerstroke: 6637, downpipe to dump exhaust, 140v IDM and a shift kit.

84 Honda Sabre V65 1100: pipes, jet kit and new tires. Faster than I think I'll ever need.
