Big Stroker just finished a convert on his SD
send hima PM as he took some good pictures and what not.
The X can get some decent MPG
on highway cruising and overall. I find it funny it has such a bad rap for mph but that os from the gassers with thre singel digit city numbers when run hard. The diesels getsbetter mpg
than most all of the small based foriegn pickups and most all SUVs from that time an many today.
If you have not take the cross beams off the roof rack. They are not useable wear the paint off the roof and likely don't do much for wind resistance. For coasting I would think you could wire up a converter lock unlock switch you can get a lot more out of coasting or shifting to N not always a good idea but effective. I live in the mountains and on certain grades they are perfect for it as other traffic is almost nonexistant. Can go over 4 miles without touching the go pedal.
I get about 18 combined driving and 21 highway 17 all city. [email protected]
tunes added about 1.5-2 mpg
to my mpg
. Also it needs to be realized my highway or city driving is not like that of Tx Fl as it is quite hilly with very little if any completely flat areas. Becasue of this I found driving 68-69 actually gives me better mpg
as I am in a better part of the curve for the hills. But when I get near DC and head down 95 south best mpg
is 55-60 I usually run 65. There I am thinking I can get closer to 23 but have not run it since the chip. Would love to run on some really flat areas like alot of I 10 from Ga -Tx or FL highways.
All my mileage is calculated by hand . Fill up goto clear fuel up to edge of the mouth. Takes a bit to constantly wait on the foam to back down.
