    I recently bought a 07 6 cyclinder that I swear felt like it had a supercharger under the hood. I would be driving down the highway and look down and be doing 80 90 no problem. Then after the cold weather really hit it seems like it has lost its pep. I took it in for its 45000 service and had the suggested maint. done as well as learning the 30000 service was never done on it. So, it also had a tune to include new plugs. I thought that would do it. Keep in mind the truck runs great but it just seems like I gotta really get on it to get going where before it was effortless. The dealer said that that was typical for cold weather. Really?? Any thoughts??

    I think it has to do with the different blend of gas during winter
