Description
A basic, no frills truck. With my current mods I get 25 to (occasionally) 35 mpg in the city, according to my Scanguage. I need to do more accurate calculations when I fill up. We have lots of hills here in Maine which kills my highway mileage, only 30 to 35 mpg but will hopefully change drastically with the aero mods.
Modifications
-removed the clutch driven fan and installed an electric fan.
-plexiglass grill cover.
-inflated tires to 50 psi.
-Scanguage to monitor FE.
-synthetic oil in engine, tranny, and rear diff.
-Goodyear Viva 2 LRR tires.
Planned Modifications
-will soon start building a belly pan and a sloped bed cover.
-will install solar panels to keep battery topped off to reduce load on alternator (don't know if this will really do anything but it's worth a try. It will at least keep my battery in good shape)
-just bought insulating tape for the manifold.
