I won't be commuting to work much longer so I decide to check on Barney's mpg capabilities:
last week, filled and refilled at the same pump on my way to work mon, then on my way home on thurs nite. from winterbourne to wroxeter and back for 4 days, no side trips and same route. mostly Hwy 86 .
stock performance shifted like crap lazy feeling, didn't pass more than once all my way to work. 23.5 mpg ,
same trip this week, same fuel fill and refill. this time with my superchip tuner on "tow safe" . shifted awesome, passed many cars and fun to pass with, definitely feels like more power even though it might just be shift improvements. 24.3 mpg ,
on the weekend I towed trailer to Stratford, brought home a 92 explorer parts vehicle, then made a hard trip to Scarborough on the 401, and home back roads . filled same location and averaged 19.5 mpg. with superchip tow safe.
this vehicle just went over 445,000 km today. I don't think it has ever run better. I'm probably going to part it out and use the drivetrain in something else, the body is beat and the interior is trashed.
BUILT FORD TOUGH
too bad the V6 powerstroke wasn't based on the 7.3 instead of the 6.0!!!!!!!!!!
would make one hell of a nice engine for a new F150?????
