    I have a 2003 doublecab with kings, deavers, 5150 bilsteins and a new Volant air intake. I run 31's. My latest mileage is 16 per gallon. I have 44500 miles on it.

    You folks have any idea why I'm getting such low mileage or is it normal.

    Thanks

    well from what I hear the volant causes the truck to run slightly more rich without a tune, check tire psi, try running some seafoam, are you up to date on all maintenance (plugs, oil, diff)? clean your MAF sensor? If this is all of a sudden did you fill up last at a cheap station?

    Oh and welcome to TW bud!

    I went to get a K&N filter, but my check engine light would stay on despite resetting it. I had 4x4 parts do the work; I just drive. Anyway, they gave me the Volant for no extra cost...

    I'm sorry for being so uneducated, but how do you use seafoam in the truck as I have no carb?

    Thanks

    you pull off a vacuum line (i use the one going into the brake booster) and have the motor suck in the seafoam on its own while its running, then you shut it off for a little bit, connect the vacuum line again, start it up and watch the smoke show haha
