DRW MPG ?
Just wanted to get a thread going for just drw 7.3s talking about miles per gallon. Thought we could share some info on what is done to our trucks to get the best outta them. I want to limit it to only duallies, I know some nondrw trucks are getting 20 or better but I haven't heard of many drw's getting that.
ok so, ran a half tank using the same tune the entire time (TW's economy tune) and got 16.9 mostly highway running average of 65ish the entire time, driving conservatively upon acceleration. Hand calculated of course, but it was actually right on with my lie-o-meter. I was hoping for better but it is a big truck...
Tire size- 235/85/16
Tire pressure- Front 60psi
axle ratio- 4.10
Rest of the information is in my sig, but I have still not sent out my chip to be reburned for my turbo, or the t500, not that it will make a difference but wanted to note that. So lemme know what your running and how you compare. Thanks everyone
