hey guys i want to know about how much miles do u guys get? for about a quarter of a tank?

i can run 40miles in my truck and thats a quarter of a tank. this bitch drinks some gas. i have lightend up the heavy foot and taking off. but i live 20 miles to the town i allways go to. i can go there and come back home and thats a quarter of a tank.

so is there any thing that might be messing up my throtal body or do u think i need to clean it? or the injectors? i am not very big on engines and shit. just in lowering suspentions.

about 100 miles first 1/4 another 100 miles to half then another 150- 180 to empty. the fuel gauge doesnt work in a linear fashion because of the shape of the tank.

14.371 gals got me about 270 miles 2 weeks ago.
thats a little under 19mpg

and the same about got me 245 this past week.
thats about 17.0 mpg

so a fill up could get me about 300miles.

maybe your plugs are going bad or something. how long has the bad mileage been going on for? any CELs or anything out of the ordinary?

I used to run a K&N filter but in all honesty i didnt really notice anything with it so i put the stock filter back on it.

I get between 60-100 miles on the first quarter depending on how I drive and on the highway or not. Overall I get pretty shitty mileage, anywhere between 15 - 18 mpg a tank.

about 100 miles first 1/4 another 100 miles to half then another 150- 180 to empty. the fuel gauge doesnt work in a linear fashion because of the shape of the tank.
That's news to me. Weird.

AMEN i drive the shit out of it as well for the same reason and with as loud as my truck is it's fun to see the looks on their faces as i take off lol


p.s. my gas mileage sucks because of the mods i have to the exhaust i have an intake but that didn't affect my mileage very much

bheathcoe it's too bad you live alll the way in florida sounds like we could have alot of fun cruisin together
