Thats the best, most direct post I've heard in my life! Nice post!rockadaous said:first off face it. you own a gas guzzler. things you can do to help it a bit is CAI/3923 autolite plugs & wires/brass rotor and cap/180 T-stat/cat back exhaust/change sensors/TB/programmer/synthetic fluids and keep your foot out of it
Try a synthetic oil for your engine and trans... check the size of your tires. I hear the bigger size tires eat up your gas. Good luck...JRTF83 said:so an intake would help? anything else thats easy? how about gears? those are difficult because you have to change out the rear end AND the front transfer case right?
First off.... the Keeping your damn foot out of it idea should be up at the top of the list. I can floor the crap out of my truck... and get horrible gas milage... or drive like mrs granny and get 18 to 19 in the city.BlackDak said:So, to recap...
New plugs, cap, rotor, wires (improved)
And keep my damn foot out of it...
I do mostly stop and go all day. My first week with the truck cost me a full tank ($45.00) so I am highly motivated to make some changes. I accept that it's gonna drink the gas, and I'm fine with that, but anything I can do to help it, I will do.
OK so drive behind a semi, so you will save alittle on gas and have to send alot on paint from all the rock chips, I don't know about that, i try not to driver behind semi's I guess you bought a truck so deal with it, that what I did. If you want good gas mileage buy a small carsupradakotaman said:the 2nd and 3rd most beneficial things I did to improve mileage: switching to Amsoil synthetic (from Mobil 1) and leaving the tailgate down (if i'm not hauling anything) though that only matters on the freeway. Around town 25-40 mph and usually stop and go, the 1st beneficial thing comes into mind: don't gas it so hard. It's tough, but do all three and u'll be surprised. Changing out my plugs this wknd so that'll help hopefully a bit more. I was told switching the differential fluid with Amsoil will help yet more, so that'll be also upcoming on my agenda.
Oh yeah, want to really save gas on the freeway? If you're not in a rush drive behind a semi. I mean you're only going 55 the whole time, but if you think about it, most of your wind drag is eliminated soo...end result, well my overhead thing for the first time ever read 26 mpg :rofl: eventually i got bored and changed lanes, back to 18 mpg.
Good luck! :banana2: <most hilarious emoticon i've seen yet
How was your sensors changed and was it hard to replace them? Can it be done without taking it to a shop.rockadaous said:first off face it. you own a gas guzzler. things you can do to help it a bit is CAI/3923 autolite plugs & wires/brass rotor and cap/180 T-stat/cat back exhaust/change sensors/TB/programmer/synthetic fluids and keep your foot out of it
