Are you gaining the fuel mileage by doing the calculations at the pump, or watching the DIC? I know that with the Juice on level 4 my DIC says I'm getting way better mileage than stock, but it actually seems to be getting worse mileage (can't keep my foot out of it). When it's stock my DIC seems to be 99% accurate.
I've been watching that lately too. My last tank of gas I ran Level 4 with Low Boost on 4. Calculated at the pump I got~15 mpg. Granted I can't keep my foot out of it.....
This tank I'm trying Level 3 and Low Boost on 2. Now, I am running 33's with an uncalibrated speedo, so I know I am off by some percentage. I will be off by the same percentage every time I check, so compared to each other I will know if I'm getting better or worse mileage. I just won't know the exact mileage.
I would think the Low Boost setting makes the biggest difference in mileage. At the higher settings, isn't it just pooring more fuel to the system to accelerate the boost?
Camstyn, I was just guestimating fuel milage useing the computer. I'm going to fill up today and I'll see how many gallons I've used.
I'm going to run my power setting at #5 and my low boost on #1 today and see what happens.
Wyo Dmax, I have the same size tires as you. I think the difference in the stock speedo is 9%. I could be wrong. My stock speedo reads 55mph when the Edge says 60 mph. 55x9%=59.95mph. I'm not sure I'm right but I am at least close.
The flywheel was replaced the day before! Does not seem to be a problem without the Edge or w/ Edge as long as I do not accel fast at 6th gear and over 2K rpm. Have not run it on level 4 since I got the truck back from the dealer. I wonder if it is a hydro heating issue that causes the fluid to expand forcing the pedal back?
I talked to Edge today. Level 5 on low fuel boost is how the Juice without Attitude is set. Levels 4-1 are delays of when the fueling boost begins. At low fuel boost level 5, fueling enhancement fully begins as soon as you step on the pedal. On level three, there is something like a 30% boost off idle, but you don't get the full boost until about 7.0 PSI from the turbo. On level 1, you don't get full fueling boost ontil 10 PSI on the turbo.
I set mine back to 5/5. I have got as good as 21.9 mpg with the reg Juice on level 4. As long as I drive like an adult, I'll get the same mileage with the Attitude. Edited by: afp1
