Not sure if I told you guys, bit the truck was amazing coming over here. A full 3/4mpg more than normal. Throttle response fantastic.

Great news about the truck, Monty. But I have a question. Are you saying your truck is getting 0.75 (3/4) MPG better, or is it 3 to 4 MPG better? And if just 3/4, is that while towing, like from 9.5 up to 10.25? Hypothetically speaking. And if just towing, do you have any real numbers running unloaded, not towing?

Good evening, crew! Just another sunny day here in sunny Arizona. Not much happening again today.
Hope all had a great hump day! Later.

Good morning gang!

Tim those pics are great! Thank you for sharing them. I'll be that PB Blaster came in handy

Don, every truck I've deleted has seen a slight improvement in mileage. I'll bet Monty's 3/4 MPG increase under load is accurate. Here's the thing...you see that increase stomping on it all the time. If you drive normal, you could see a bit better than that (like 1-2 MPG max), but no one does that I know. My 6.7 Powerstroke and 6.7 Cummins reacted the same way. Unless you are trying to hypermile and squeeze every drop of fuel out of the truck, you aren't going to see huge gains. Monty's truck is pretty much stock, so he will see a bit better than my lifted pic with 35's on it of course, but I'll bet you or percentage gains are comparable. It's hard to say...his extra tires and wide hips might wash out my height/rotating mass challenges.

Well after 2 1/2 years, I'm finally getting to the patch in the cedar ceiling in our sitting room. When we had the roof done they swapped out two HUGE leaking skylights for two smaller units that don't leak. Time to patch in the ceiling. Going to tackle that this weekend.

Don, I don't have much time in the seat without towing after installing the tune. So far it's been almost entirely towing mileage and I'm up to 10.68 hand calculated, also as shown by the truck. My best coming here the last two years with the same rig is 9.8 over all. I only have about 200 miles not towing after the delete, but the truck shows upwards of 15 mpg when she usually only gets around 14.4 average.

I guess during this rain delay, there are 2 million people on their phones and can't get the sunrise pics to load, but it was gorgeous!

Nice pics Monty. They'll get better in two weeks.
I've been meaning to ask you as well.... What was your mix ratio on the bleach/ Simple green for awning cleaning?

10% bleach is plenty enough. Funny thing is that it will turn the Simple Green cloudy then clear😁. Anything more than that is just wasting bleach.
