Default Exhaust tailpipe.

Ever seen one like this. '01 SuperCrew Lariet 5.4 Auto. 117k mi. Untouched, been like this since I got it a year ago. Runs very smooth, lots of power and getting 16 to 17 mpg in town.

Looks pretty stock. Pic is too close to tell anything.

A bit confused... Are you implying that your exhaust tip is netting you 16 to 17 mpg?

Yes. I'm just amazed how clean inside of pipe is. No black, no nothing. Just little dusting of rust from water.
