    Here's the game:

    Top off your tank,

    check mileage,

    try to keep it at 2000 rpm or less,

    when the yellow/orange light comes on note mileage,

    subtract 2nd reading from 1st and see who has gone the most miles!!!


    be sure to specify engine size!....DON'T CHEAT!..there's no prize! except for saving money:D


    if you want: figure out your MPG too!

    Who's game?

    Kinda like telling people with a scangauge to keep the TPS under 30 and see what your MPG is.

    hint for those that want to win....drive either on a constant incline or decline (whatever makes the light come on later) and you will have this in the bag!!

    why dont you just play a game for the best mpg, rather than when the light goes on? way to many variables here....

    How about seeing who can kill off a tank of gas the quickest. I think that would be a lot more fun.

    As it is with my regular cab, in the proposed fuel savings contest, I’ll beat anybody with a V6 without even trying.
