Possible MPG Ford mod coming out
One of the other diesel tech was at the Ford training center here in Dallas and was talking to our FSE ( Field Service Engineer). Apparently Ford has been looking into this whole 'MPG sucks' thing and have found that the air dam (chin spoiler) whatever you want to call it, isnt long enough and is causing too much air to go under inside the engine compartment and is causing a parachute effect... I didint get the part number from the guy but be on the lookout. They were installing one on the training truck to get their view on it. From what we have been told they have been seeing 5-8mpg increases.
:crossing fingers for you guys:
