So far the usual being fass
, injectors, chip, possibly turbo. All used in moderation can help save gas, but what else can be done to help fuel milage?
Im sure this post will be kinda helpful for some, especially for those in places where diesel is pushing 4 bucks a gallon.
2.Get rid of your fan if you don't need it and
3.maybe cardboard in front of the radiator(that's what I've done, do whatever it takes to stabilize your temp)
4.Make sure your truck is properly alligned. That's a big one. If you want demo on how much your allignment can drag your truck down. Push your truck in Neutral with correct alignment, then push your truck with the toe set really far in. You'll get the picture pretty fast.
6.Evans Waterless Coolant.
7.Truck bed cap/Aerodynamics
9.Make sure your engine is plugged in whenever possible
10. Keep your speeds down, the truck isn't aerodynamic and that hurts MPG
11. Intake Elbow
12. Tires make sure your tires are ok.
That should get you started.
Nothing helps these things out with their gas mileage.
Diesel is a different story. I'd start to use the term "fuel" it's more politically correct. Espically in a era wear alternate fuels are now being used.
