    LOL, my mpg went way up with my new 6.2. Except my tank was on empty showing something like 16 gallons used and requiring 24 gallons to fill...

    Hand calc matches dic on mine. Its noticable how much slower the gas gauge is going down too. When I would go downhill before, instant gauge would only read like 35 mpg. Now it reads 50-99. Thats the biggest change. Seems like idle is using less fuel and DFCO is kicking in now.

    Nice. I need to talk to my tuner. The last time he got to mess with it I had filled with regular to see if he could make it use that. No joy but he left it so I wouldn't blow the bottom end apart with what wsss in there. I expect great improvement but I want a dry day.

    Ha np. I have a bit of OCD so I obsess about shit I cant figure out until its figured out. I could never tune for a living.

    Everything is pretty solid now so im happy. Not OCD enough to go yankin heads off for the noisy lifters at least. Ive made peace with it.

    Many years ago I had a full size Bronco and got hit from behind by a Toyota. No discernible damage to the Toyota but my back bumper was twisted like a Christmas ribbon. Of course the guy's information was all false.
