Weird dealer story & need input
Hey Guys , Let me first say great site . I would like some input on my trucks Fuel mileage that has been bugging me for over a yr . First I have a 2001 7.3 PSD Crew Cab 8ft bed completely stock . This is the back ground , about a 1.5 yrs ago my oil pump seals blew out when my wife was towing our camper (yes she is still my wife) it happened @ a street light & no other damage was done . The truck was towed to a ford dealer to be fixed while there I guess there was some kind of recall on the Crank or Cam positioning sensor not sure witch or even but it was some kind of sensor i know that much LOL . OK B4 all this I was getting 17mpg in town & around 20 to 22 on the highway @ 65 mph , ever since then I have been getting 14-15 in town & 16 on the highway . Also I went up north this past week moose hunting & putting around on the old tote roads ( I mean just above an idle ) I was getting 13.5! Does any of this make sense . I'm thinking I must of had some kind of down load or something & the stealer must have taken it off , is there anyway to tell .
I am looking into getting gauges & putting stacks on , if anybody has a down pipe & Y pipe I'm interested I'm going to do the DIY filter & foil delete this week . I've neglected my truck long enough but have always done my oil changes on time with fuel filter truck has 106,000 easy miles .
Thanks for any & all input .
