Lie-O-Meter is Way Off
I just went on a 1500 mile round trip with my Truck.
'08, Crew Cab, 4wd, with 35" Toyos, tuned with Spartan, 4" Flo-Pro, DPF and Cat Delete, and AFE intake.
Set the Cruise at 81mph as verified by my GPS, running the 275 tune. The LOM read 23.2mpg avg all day long and on the way home, read as high as 24.5mpg avg!
Here are the Actual Numbers from the last tank. 153.3 miles, 9.9 gallons = 15.48mpg.
The LOM Read 24.5mpg avg and read some Crazy Number like 575 miles to E.
Now, I'm not complaining about the Mileage, but the LOM is WRONG by 9mpg.
How does this happen? Can Spartan fix this to read a little closer with their tuning?
I really Love this Truck! The Power is Incredible!
With the Cruise set at 81mph, when you mash the Pedal. Bam! 100mph easy. Passing is a Breeze if you need to step into it.
I am very Happy with this Truck and Very Happy with Spartan!
i am a walking screaming hell. a thing of torture to behold. this vivisection splits my soul. a thing of torture to behold... yeah!
