i get mad at myself whenever i see i let it creep up to 50 from 45 mph lmao
I've noticed big MPG improvements by slowing from 65 to 60 to 55... but going slower than 55 doesn't seem to make a difference. Maybe even brings the MPG back down a little.
Anyways... 93 F-250, non-turbo, E4OD, 4.1 gears, pulling a 21-foot travel trailer loaded with full water and a bunch of tools and things (I'm guessing 5000 to 6000 pounds) would go up a steep hill at low altitude at about 45 mph. A 425-horsepower Freightliner, with 40,000-pound load, could not match that speed on the same hill.
my god man.i guess your not concerned with these crazy fuel prices?
i get mad at myself whenever i see i let it creep up to 50 from 45 mph lmao......im serious too.
Fuel prices, they have dropped 20 cents in the last couple weeks, i am thinking road trip, just not sure where. Buy the way pulling that load and also the one posted farther up on this page i go 14mpg and when im empty i get 15. i never even had to down shift, this truck continues to impress me everyday.
