Hey everyone, ive been fighting this bad mileage for a while, like no "oh im getting 13, what can i do to get 20?"
No. Im fighting to get in the double digits!
I thought it was my exhaust manifolds were very badly cracked, and turns out they were cracked quite a bit, and on one i was missing HALF of a gasket!
Missing half a gasket is hard to do, but the tech said while installing the originals the gasket must have tore, and then over time the exhaust blew the gasket out of place and it went bye bye.
So i figured that would fix my problem when i got them replaced. No dice.
Still around 8mpg, and if i baby it i get 9mpg. I cant figure it out!
Ive got my own K&N round filter that just clamps to the stock tube (Got rid of the air box) and a FM Super 44.
I do all my own oil change about 2,000 miles ago, and the tranny, rear diff, brakes fluid, and power steering fluid were done 5000 miles ago, the belts are still new, hoses are good. I keep my truck maintained as much as i can, but its not helping!
Any advice guys?
