With current prices it costs around $150 to fill up and I get about 1000
highway miles on a tank of fuel on current axle gears. The truck originally
came with 3.53 gears and I think 3.73 or 3.77 were put on it reducing fuel
economy down to 21 MPG.
I want to go back to the orginal gears if I can find them somewhere and get
25 MPG. With that I could then get 1300 highway miles on a tank of fuel.
The original owner was doing a lot of towing.
I have no plans for towing for a long while.
thats really not bad. im currently spending well over $75 to fill up and
getting 19.5 mpg for around 500 to 550 miles per tank (depends on how low i
run it). ive seen this upgrade mentioned before and was curious as to
wiether or not it would be worth it. the extra range would be nice when
towing cross country but i wonder if i do enough of it to make it a worth
thanks for the info.
