Looney fuel

I just loaded looney fuel. Surprise surprise Vivian had AMAZING service. Man she is incredible. Took it for a 20 mile ride. Obviously it's not all learned and set but it felt strong and had no smoke when I got on it. Lower light switch effect and the mpg on the lie-o-meter went up .2 which is odd since I haven't reset it in months. I'll add to this post after I drive it for a while this weekend.

THANKS VIVIAN!!!!

Both of your trucks have already learned the tune. The relearn thing that everyone thinks takes place is false. These trucks learn every time they are started. There is only a initial transmission relearn which is completed upon shifting through the gears all the way up and back down. And it doesn't matter how you drive it in the initial trans relearn either. You can beat it or baby it and it will still drive the same. The initial relearn is only for the setting of shift points and pressures. Then the TCM adjusts based on how you drive each time you take the truck out for a drive.
