Well, he came to my work and put it on. I don't get off duty until tomorrow morning. I'll have to wait until then to drive it. I got the 30hp mileage tune, adjustment for tire size, little firmer shift, and speed limiter removed.
Let us know how you make out. I'm running the Westers programming but haven't had a chance to really see what the mileage is. The truck usually ends up idling for a while before I leave work so that doesn't help. The one time that I did figure all highway mileage without a trailer it was in the mid 20s. I need to do another highway trip to confirm this. I'll be taking a run from MA to MI and back in a few weeks. That will be a good mileage test. I'll jump in the bed and start dancing if mileage is in the mid 20s.
Well I ran to Colorado and back last month. From Fort Worth, TX to Durango,Co I got 16.95mpg. Onthe way back I got 19.2mpg. I ran 75mph.
The thing I have noticed most after I got home was the decrease in town and when pulling. Stop n Go driving gets somewhere around 12 and with a loaded down landscape trailer(zero mower's, four foot sides,tools and tandem axle) I getting in the 8-9 range.
My city mileage is a few less than before, so it is kind of a wash at the moment.
On another note I can get 21-22 going 60 on cruise, but it feels like I'm crawling.
I'm thinking of going to 265/75/r16. Maybe that will help.
