If only this was true

A recent trip to Georgia with my H&S mini maxx on the hot damn tune. I could only wish that my truck actually got this kind of mileage.

Ha, mine does the same. I wonder why they are so off after they are tuned?

mines right on even after being tuned and running 38s. The trick is not to reset it let it average out. I haven't reset mine in over 30k

Yea might take awhile....after 4 day of driving around mostly in the woods hunting, it dropped a little. Still showed 28.2 and went back up on the drive home.

I checked mine on a 2000 mile trip. Mine read 28 mpg, and my actual mileage was 24 mpg. Speed average was 70 mph and no load, all highway. This is the second time I checked it and both times the actual was between 3 & 4 mpg different.

I reset mine every fill up and I hand check it also and it is usually 1 to 2 mpg off. I also top it off almost to the overflow it takes awhile with the foam.
