At $3.50/gallon, what suggestions can you make to improve fool economy? Besides, parking my F150 and riding my bike, I was thinking of putting a cat-back exhaust system on the truck and perhaps an aftermarket intake. However, I enjoy the quietness of the cab. Is there a performance exhaust that will give the 4.6 a performance boost without turning it into a Hog?
Ya...I drive with a very light foot for the most part. Now and then I get on it. I'll be curious to see these new Rangers (F100) when they come out. Would be nice to have a second truck to putz around the neighborhood in...
I have an 04 5.4 fx4 regular cab. I have a cat-back flowmaster with dual tips. I also have an air-raid CAI. I only have 28,000 miles on the truck and have just done my second oil change with Royal Purple. On the Highway, my last check was about 19-20 MPG. I have been impressed with the milage increase. I will stick with RP Oil and am getting ready to Change my ATF to RP and My rear diff to RP gear oil. So that is what I have done and gained about 5-6 MPG from stock. That is about what I can do without a tuner.
Everyone is interested in gaining mileage, me too. I just checked it the other day and there is a mix of city and short highway drives. I averages just short of 13mpg, like 12.9ish.
Question is, does Royal Purple outperform Mobil 1 in saving fuel? I used to use M1 in my Ranger and I liked how it worked.
