mpg +

I took my truck to fords about 3 months ago for a "tune up" offer, plugs,air fliter,oil and whatever else ect ect .So after this my mpg is fantastic,im getting 310 miles between fill ups( takes 15 gals when gauge is reading red) so ive 5 gallons left in the tank!! I drive highway roads to work and stay at 60mph,not bad for a 4.0L shoc with 112,000

Is your speedometer recalibrated properly? If you regeared adequetely, you shouldn't have noticed a huge hit in your MPG

Prior to installing the underdrive pulley I was getting 16-18 mpg highway.
Filled up the tank the other day and will see if the underdrive pulley adds any to the gas mileage.

OR 4x4
