I know! This is my newest and favoriteist thread! I am working on gas mileage downers, as I am a scientist, even though I just work at the cheesecake factory. I am seeing if I can get my dodge below 9 MPG by the end of the week. I am running the tires low and I am flooring it from stop light to stoplight, I even shoved a dead squirrel in the intake to restrict it some. I'll report my findings.

P.S. should I or shouldn't I drag my spare tire behind my truck using a logging chain?

You should get an extra spare so you'll have two. BTW make sure they're oversized spares

hahahah... I laughed so hard here..

don't put the dead squirrel in the intake, put it in the exhaust - that way the coolant temperature will drive up and the Fuel KAMs will drive the trims up!

Thanks for the tip! BTW, I love the truck in your avatar. I would kill for something that clean... well maybe not kill, but I might pull the plug on someone who is already brain dead and doesn't want to live artificially.

you should put a button on the dash so you can wire straight 12V to your fuel injectors so you can instantly turn the cycle duty to 100% incase you want to dump all the fuel you can and shoot some flames....

Best idea for better mileage? Go build a smokey yunick style hot air engine. He built one that got like 50 somethin in a 4 cyl fiero makin some pretty insane power. Look it up, I don't know all the figures off hand, nor do I want to explain it, I'm typing on my phone but here's a link

here i got one, have a lasso sitting in your passenger seat and just throw it, and hook onto random trucks and then shut yours down, i bet it works wonders, you should try it some time, just hold on tight, maybe wear gloves,

i just bought a programmer for my truck ( Jet Performance Programmer, Jet Performance Chips & Tuners ) and there is a setting to factor in the bigger tires... mine being 31's as well... and it really makes a difference in better gas mileage, not feeling like its lagging, and it puts the speedometer back in check!
