I'm at 17-18BTDC now. It still hops and spins them into second. Curious to see how it turns out with the MPGs. Was getting 14.5. Ouch!

Every time I get more aggressive with timing my idle goes up.

Right now all I want is 20MPG HWY.

Even the little 4 banger doesn't do much better than that. 22-23 is probably the best I've ever done.

I used to get 20-21 city and 23-25HWY long ago with my 3.0. I almost wonder if I have a making injector but not really sure how to test that.

You are imagining things. You never really got 23-25 Highway. You kept saying that, and we kept smiling because we knew better.

Haha! I totally did. Used to fill up every roughly 275 miles. Most fill ups between 10-12 gallons. Generally in town/combined it was 10 gallons for about 200 miles. Generally about 150ish miles on the low side of half tank which is 6-8 gallons depending on what day and how flat the road is.

I'm currently just over 120 miles and almost down to half a tank so maybe I'll be around 20MPG again. Would be nice.

Remember, I have a 15 7/8 gallon tank not the 21 gallons the later trucks have.

I used to average about 16 MPG with my former 4x4 Pathfinder on 31's, that's why I sold it and bought the 4 cylinder 5 speed truck.

My former 87 on 33's was lucky to get 10 MPG with the 4.62 gears and no over drive ! Thing would turn 4000 RPM's at 60 MPH

First partial tank at ~18. Half 18 and half 15 which netted 17MPG. Getting better!
