Added a Jet Mass Airflow Sensor today and took it for a quick run. 20 mile loop of mixed city and lower speed (45-50ish) highway got a 21.8 on the Trip B MPG. I know, not definitive, but encouraging.
So I finally sprang for a cold air Intake and need up with a S&B. They make a very nice product and seem to have thought things out well. It has been on the truck just a few days now, but by MPG has gone up considerably. Up to 17 for 400 mile avg combined. After mostly 11-14. Truck is 2015 GMC Sierra 5.3 with 60k.
Rob Okray replied to Gorehamj's topic in The NewsroomI have had 2 Chevy's and 2 GMC's. This 2015 may well be my last. I buy used as I love cashing in on depreciation, and my health has reduced my income significantly. Not interested in Ford or FCA, (you can call it Ram all you want, we all know what it is). Might try a Tundra or Titan. Who Knows?
The new Rams are tempting, but then I remember FIAT/Chrysler. Before medical problems forced my retirement, I spent 25 years as QC/Engineering Tech, much of it the auto industry. The QC issues were well known at both companies before the merger/acquisition, I don't have reason to believe that the combination would have improved matters. Not to say that Ford and GM don't have issues now and again, but it seems systemic with #3
Rob Okray replied to Gorehamj's topic in The NewsroomElectric car batteries lose half the range in cold weather. Winter much? Plus look here... https://unitedwithisrael.org/israeli-company-develops-revolutionary-car-engine/ https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-6800343/Superlight-micro-engine-size-BACKPACK-power-Ford-Fiesta.html?fbclid=IwAR0xnwl1__03EMyqzMP5MrPGnWKtRhnsRSWFpYRLes13DOYbiVTUdMQRY10
Looks like I should have come here first, but I might be ok anyway? So I have a 2015 SLT Sierra and thought I was going night blind. I got these without doing too much research, but they seem to have improved matters thus far. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07K27LJC4/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
