I'm ordering a UltraGauge to watch my mileage real time and maybe find the sweet spot in speeds to gain the most mileage. Otherwise, I do kept up with the tire pressure. Good to know the spacer and exhaust stuff haven't really improved mileage.
Good idea on an ultragauge or Scangauge..... My Garmin actually has a mpg calculator that u enter gallons filled, and price per gallon.....
Then before it powers off after a drive, it displays (going from memory).... Eat gallons used for that trip, mpg, and cost of the trip.
I have it set to off, as long as I still get my 320 to 350 miles per tank roughly (I only run it till the light comes on about 1 time a year, and regularly fill the tank when I hit a quarter tank.... This ensures proper fuel pump operation and longevity).
2" lift, sliders, avid off road
light bar, sliders, 75 series load range C a/t tires, supercharger, headers, y pipe, 3" exhaust, afe intake, toolbox, I avg 230lbs but lately since injury sit around 270, drive up the Cuesta grade in San Luis obispo regularly, and I drive the truck hard.
So I think I'm getting decent mileage considering I actually do more city than highway driving lately.
