Improving MPG with upgrades?
I've been drinving a 2002 F250, 7.3 for 3 years now with absolutely no problems other than my MPG getting lower since I've retired in the great Pacific Northwest. I've upgraded to the AFE Stage2 intake, Edge Attitude and 4" exhaust bt have nominal payback in the last year. I'm averaging about 17 mpg. I am very anal with maintenance and my local dealer inspects it every 3,000 for oil changes so I know it's in good shape. Yes, I could do my own oil changes but I have agreat program where my oil changes cost me only $10.00 EVERY TIME! That's right....$10.00!:nana
I've researched and kicked around the idea of adding a WVO system to run veggie oil instead of diesel at $3.80 per gallon.
I'm curious about the propane injection system as well as an air/fuel seperation system. Now, my rig is a daily driver as well as used on my developing retirement property so I'm not trying to build big horse power and moster trucks like most I see on these forums. I want to focus on MPG and not lose performance.
Does anyone have any personal experience with the propane injection or air/fuel seperation either pro or con?
Let me also state that I'm not a diesel mechanic or junkee and if you start throwing around a bunch of acronyms, I'll have absolutely no idea what you're talking about. I'm in the learning stages and am a hands-on learner.
Also, any information or education chips would be nice too. As I stated, I installed the Edge Attitude with no real increase noticed. Is there an additional chip to "stack" on it or is everything build in?
