I drove from North central Pa to Southern Md this morning all on one tank of fuel. It was 315 miles, and it only took 16.5 gallons to fill the truck up...... wich means.....


My OBS with 188,000 on it got 19 MPG!!! with 4:11 gears!


i am definatley happy with those numbers!!

Congrats on getting that tune! It is an awesome feeling to pass the fuel stop a couple of more times, isn't it?

My best single tank average was over 23mpg. That was the first journey with the 80e - Jody put it in the truck at a Carolinas PSD gtg that very day.

My summertime avg stays around 22-ish.

I was taking it easy tho to see what kind of fuel milage I could get.

For black smoke I bump it up to the 120...

For now, only a 3" body lift. Some guys don't like them, but mine has been on for sometime now with no problems. I check the body bolts and body mount area every few months and I have not had to tighten any bolts and have not had any cracks in the body mount area to speak of.
