trans efficiency

Is there a way to make trans more efficient with its operation and mpg?

I understand that keeping up with the maintenance and using the right produts is a big part.


Thanks

O wait crap I was thinking you had a 4r100. YOu dont have a VB. If I was you and you have the money i'd talk to RCD about a full suncoast trans. They are very good

Lower viscosity fluid and a tighter torque converter, not sure what else can be done.

To a certain point I'm all about if it's not broke don't fix. There is only so much you can do to make your mpg increase and from your sig 21 mpg is fantastic. A brick can only be so areo dynamic...haha
