More to come made it Sioux Falls, North Dakota tonight
As I stated earlier my dads ecoboost is not being fuel efficient at all - like under 6mph did some research and taking to dealer in morning for a CPU flash - hopefully this gets the ecoboost back on track - the trucks has power to spare no issue there, no codes, but 4.9 to 6 MPH something ain't right ........
Hopefully a quick flash and on our way to Montana
Get out and Play Harder
How fast are you towing and are you experiencing head winds? Head winds will REALLY suck the ole petrol.
My old Chevy 5.3L got about 9 mpg average in 6K miles, pulling 7000# TH with a loaded truck and scoot; I tried to stay right around 62MPH, but would let her have her head on down hills to get a running start, which seemed to help.
Cruise control no help at all. Out 29HFS THs are heavier and slightly bigger (taller) that my old one.
I saw a very unusual high of 11 MPG (tail wind) a abnormal low of 8 MPG, all averages. If you're looking at "instant MPG", fo-get-about-it!
I hope the reflash will help. Play(ing) Harder comes at a cost, but worth every penny! How funny would it be if your truck gets better economy than your Dad's.
Say hi to Dad from me, Clint
