    Thanks again! I'm still trying to fine tune it a bit. I hope nobody is too annoyed that's I put it in my truck. My goal is to average 17mpg for one tank. Might not happen for a while though as it's snowing pretty heavy here right now. Again...

    It'll probably take a few tanks to dial it in. Enjoy!

    I forgot if I told you you can find a PDF owner's manual online for it. It's completely possible to figure it out just by messing around, or search for:

    I've still got some fiddling to do but I managed to get my best economy yet. I got 17.5mpg(us gallons)/13.5L/100kms {hand calculated}on my last tank! It's kinda sad that I'm actually excited about that Wrong crowd to be bragging about that kinda mileage too lol

    BUT WAIT - THERE'S MORE.

    That's how one gets started down the path. Start by trying to improve what you've got. Next, you'll start paying more attention as you look around for your next car.

    Pay more attention, pay less cash you will.

    Nice!

    Playing the game can be addictive. Especially when the reward is big (and it's going to be big with something that thirsty).

    I wasn't really trying hard at all. I don't like being "that guy" who holds up traffic for blocks or miles trying to see how far I can go on a tank. But when nobody else is around I try not to rush. I'm paying a little more attention when lights are gonna change. Staying under 115kph seems to help a bit. Running on 6 studded snow tires is likely hindering mileage a little. My fuel bill for the truck is usually 4-500 a month, I'm hoping that goes down a bit. After I move this thing is getting parked and only used to tow.

    You guys convinced me to try a little harder. I managed to get 1000kms on my last tank. Got 20mpg(us) rolling on 6 studded winter tires in an 8000lb brick.
