Milage

I drove a friend of mine from Fort Worth Tx to Nashville to buy a truck and it was 1300 miles round trip and I got 40 mpg keeping at 70ish and 40psi in the tires. (was going for maximum fuel millage) did nothing else to the car. My friend and I were very surprised when we put gas in the car and we figured it out at 40mpg.

33.2 stock to 35.4 fully bolted. Who says performance is costly?

On a full tank drive until you are almost at empty. Record the miles driven and completely fill the tank up. Repeat a couple times and total miles and gallons up. Divide miles and gallons to get ACTUAL MPG, the cars computer is a good guestamate only.
