Hi all,

I had to take the SolAire in for a few repairs so I towed it about 66 miles to the dealer. I got almost 13mpg with 6 people in the truck. On the way home I figured I would try for a personal best mpg on the carputer.

84 degrees
Wind 1-2 mph cross.
38psi in the truck tires
87 octane 10% ethanol.

Here are the results:

I love this truck!

Hyper Miling, that's what I call setting my cruise control to the posted speed limit. It amazes me how many dirty looks I get for driving the posted speed limit.
Just avoid taking complete ownership the left lane like many clueless drivers tend to do. Drivers as such also seem to be magnetized by vehicles traveling in the same direction in the lanes to the right of them. They seem to be generally clueless of their surroundings, have zero consideration for others, just can't seem to grasp the idea the left lane is intended to overtake slower traffic, they don't own the left lane, the vehicle five feet from their bumper, in law enforcement its called a clue, would like to pass or travel at a faster rate than speed their regulating and delegating for everyone else.

How's that for a run on sentence, BAM!

Hyper miling? I'm trying but not very good at it. Boost is addicting.

In my perfect world 'Digital Tickets' would be issued to anyone passed by someone driving in the right lane....even if the right lane driver was driving 100+mph. If someone in the right lane passes you then you obviously could have been travelling at your speed in the right lane. I agree with you Joemac.

Boost is a common addiction found throughout the United States. Through the '90's, the addiction to boost spread across the world. It has almost become an epidemic. Manufacturing of boost is still legal across the world. The possession of boost is punishable by, but not limited to, an excess of speeding tickets, loss of tire life, 2-3 times the fuel consumption as a non addict, and a possibility of a "****-ass" (TM Nasty Wendy) race. Multiple manufacturers are attempting to recreate the effects of boost addiction that Ford has created, although none have been successful in their attempts.

I tried it today on I-65 from Montgomery to Mobil. At the posted
speed it seemed forever.

All my driving is a combination of hwy/cty. I'm never all one or the other. My average is typically 18.x. On occasion I'll get 19.x or 20.x My truck currently only has 2700miles on it. The early miles I put on during the initial and then extended break in were done so with NO regard for fuel economy and this is reflected in my mpg for all 2700 miles of my truck being 17.4. It gets closer to what I suspect will be 18.x every tankful. My Lightning would get 13mpg used the exact same way plus it has to have Premium fuel. I am very happy getting an average of 5mpg better on regular unleaded than my Lightning got on Premium.....and I can haul/tow more stuff and people. You bet I'm happy.
