I like everyone Else is keeping track of my mpg's and i have notested that the higher the setting on my juice w/att. the better my mileage is . the mileage setting is a joke , level 3x5 it was between 14 &16 mpg with very little highway driving and lots of driving like an old lady . this week i had it set on 5x5 drove it live a true Cummings owner black smoking when the time was right , my mileage was 17.5 with no highway driving :thumbsup basically my question is could i be causing any engine damage by long term driving on the highest settings 5x5 , timing issues or any thing else .

I get better miles when im towing... dont ask why i have no idea. I might need a new thermostat maybe. But I use the quadzilla adrenaline and if i run leval 2-3 i seem to get the best milage. If i run all the way on ten i get crappy milage because im flooring it everwhere. I cant help it hahaha

I run setting 3 in town...and switch to setting 4-5 on the highway and I get about 18 city/ 24-25 highway if I just cruise and not get on it ....I've squeezed out all I think I can get out of it mileage wise...but at $4.10/gal...no cost savings anyways..like I had originally planned when diesel was $1 cheaper.

do you think keeping it on 5x5 would cause any engine problems ?
if we both weren't men then we'd b fine with 5x5 all the time....but as we both are guys that are always high on testerone, 5x5 means "balls to the walls" full throttle so in reality 5x5 on the juice might not b such a peachy thing:lol3::lol3:
