High mileage

We did up a truck yesterday and the owner is reporting 25mpg on the lie-o-meter. Even without hand calculating, it is the highest we have heard of. Job 1 truck also.

Well we just got another call from a customer heading to the Oilers game in Edmonton. Travelling at 70mph his lie-o-meter is saying 28.2mpg. That is again not hand calculating on a non lifted job 1 truck. I can only hope.

Both trucks were not lifted job 1 trucks, the first one has an AFE intake, Spartan 275 latest revision, FloPro 4" duals downpipe back (28.2 mpg). The other one has an S&B intake, 4" FloPro single downpipe back, and Spartan 275latest revision (25 mpg). It seems that now that the weather warmed up a bit, the mileage got much better.
