I'm sure you will gain something with SCT. I have Spartan myself, and with the DPF left in, I have gained 1.5 mpg short trip driving, getting on it, in cold and head winds. I am taking the DPF off this week, so I hope to gain 5+. I am sure with SCT you will gain as well.

I have the Spartan and get about 10-11lt/100km or 18+mpg with the DPF delete.

Lets just say not quite stock.

Please tell me that's hand calculated on both numbers, and NOT just the lie-o-meter.

I'm seeing a 3-4 mpg increase over stock. All hand calculated. The power is great, but that's not the reason I got it. Need all the help I can get with the 4.10 rear-end...

yes that is hand caculated, lol lol. i plan on doing another caculation as soon as i fill up again, i dont think its going to be as good as this time cause i had more in town driving, the 18 mpg was all highway driving cruising at 70 on flat land.

I hate to sound dumb, but how do you guys do an accuate hand calculation when its so hard to duplicate a "fill-up" with the foaming and the fact it will not take the fuel.Every time I fill it up even on level ground its takes different amounts of fuel to make it click off and not take more fuel and if u wait a few minets it will take more, the longer u are willing to wait the more fuel it will take (lower your milage), Im thinking this just is not consistant and accurate. The only way I see u can do it is to take 10-15 minets every time to fill up to be absolutly sure it is full. It can vary as much as 3-4 gallons.

LUCK IS WHERE OPPORTUNITY MEETS PREPARATION.
