Well this weekend i took a road trip up to the Seattle Area. On the way up I set the cruise at 75 MPH. After about 350 miles i was averaging 19 MPG. Edge on 6, MP-8 @95%

While up there I did some driving around town, Idling and Dynoing. My calculated Mileage at Fillup ended up being 17.7.

For Dyno #s i put down 429 HP and 832 TQ. The truck was running out of Fuel on the Top end. There was more power there to be made. I will scan the Dyno sheet tomorrow.

Now for the Trip home, I set the Cuise at 65 MPH. It was hard to do. Well worth it though. I got 22 MPG on the trip home. Overall it was a great weekend and got some good info.:thumbsup

Now to get the Dyno #s Up:peelout:$:

Hey Cowboy,

Where did you get your truck dynod at and what did it cost you? I'm on the East Side of Seattle and want to get a baseline dyno run on my truck before I start doing any mods.

:thumbsup Nice numbers, both MPG and dyno. I'd be happy with those numbers but I'm not going for big power.

The only thing i changed on the Dyno was one run was Edge on 5. Made about the same power. I would have liked to get a good baseline but wasnt able to. I dynoed on a Mobile Dynojet from DKDiesel. It was at a Local Gathering of the NWdiesels.com guys.

I'll have to sign up over on the board. I wish I would have know about the dyno day, I've been waiting for one in the area.

So you made about the same power with edge on 5 than you did edge and mp8? Did i interpret that right?

No the MP-8 was still turned up about 95%

I would have to say i was a little bummed of the #s too, but there are many factors that go into play along with everyone elses #s. This was a portable Dyno and they where moving people on and off real fast, so settings may or may not have been 100% correct. I am not complaining but simply stating.

Gotcha thanks for clarifying.
