That's because most people never see good mileage because everybody is always in a hurry. There's nobody I know that drives 55 anymore.
I do, and I see great mileage due to it :thumbsup:
Dont let the naysaying Nancies get to you.... theyre just pissed off because their truck gets crappy mileage.
Yes, the overhead lies. BUT... it runs off of a constant algorithm. The algorithm never changed, just the variables. So, while you may not actually be getting 21mpg on that stretch of road like the over head says.... its still going to be as constant as the variables. So.... youre driving approx the same speed with approx the same rpm's on the same stretch of road with approx the same weather... and now youre reading 27mpg. The only variable that changed was your fuel/additive etc.. so yes... you WERE getting better mileage.
You may have been getting 18 before while reading 21, and you may be getting 23 now while reading 27.... but the actual mileage still increases, just like the overhead does. Some people just cant grasp this concept. The only know the over head is "off"... thats it. They dont get that youre nto saying youre "averaging" 27mpg. Youre simply saying youre seeing a difference with a rise in fuel economy, because you know your truck well enough to know what it has always registered on that section of road.
Happy youve found something youre happy with :thumbsup:
