OK so i was basing my MPG off what my display was telling me and i just read on another thread to not believe that thing if you had mods so i did the calculations and the best MPG i have gotten 17.3!

Can't complain about that 17.3 mpg if that is on hyw. If it is street driving, you have to drink a few beers for having a superb vehicle.

There is....or should be.....a tag on the differential that should tell you what gears you have. Since it's a SRW, you probably have 3.73s, if you had a dually, they'd probably be 4.11s.

OK cool thanks. It seems like the first owner really modded this thing out though so i wouldn't be surprised if it has different gears.
