Wow....guess they don't trust the vehicle owners to do anything, do they?! I've been pretty sure I've had it higher than 3500 setting still before, just didn't seem right that it only started today. Guess I wasn't going as high as I thought I was. No chance of 'blowing the carbon out of it' is there
My bad mileage is from several things, at least several things I'm mostly sure of:
I usually don't get above 35mph the entire way to work. A whopping 8mi. of deer and school bus infested back roads.
I'm thinking of the last time I got gas, I was pointed downhill....and I always park uphill when I get gas buy 'my' pump was occupied. Didn't take the usual 16.X gal to the clicking off of the pump.
With the temps coming down, I've used the remote start more, so idling for 10 minutes to warm up doesn't help.
I'm going to keep an eye on it, but guess I learned something new again today.
Thanks for the replies. Read 'rev limiter' before, just swore I'd had it above 3500 in park before.
