i have a 07 f150 getting 17 mpg in town, i would like to get 20 MPG in town, this is a 5 speed, i do not shift into 5th gear. max in town in 40 MPH. i have 3.55 i was wondering would 3.27 getting me to that 20 MPG?
17 mpg is a good number for a pickup, and shifting into 5th will probably help your numbers.
As far as the gear change goes, have you priced it out yet? last I knew it was $1500++
That is a lot of fuel.how many miles are you going to have to drive before you actually start saving $?
still ot bad, i hav this truck on paymens for the next 4 years and that ins and extra few bucks i can throw at payments to get it paid off faster. Now next quetions can i get a set of 3.23 for my axle?
That part I'm not sure about. Everyone else I have seen went with taller gears r to accommodate bigger tires. Also I didn't see if your truck is 4x4 but if it is you will need to change both sets of gears
5th gear makes my ening bog intown,and i know that is bad for milage as well. For th skinnier talller tire what would be a good size. I would like to stay with a 17 inch max. If there is a way of going to a 16 inch tire that would be great.
[QUOTE=SCRWDRVR;11864625]Wouldn't shifting into 5th basically do the same thing, all either will do is lower the rpm's[/QUOTE What he said changing gears or taller tires are going to do the same thing as shifting to 5th. You are probably at your Max MPG.
