  1. Has anybody gone aftermarket to get away from the squeaking?
  2. Depending on where and how I’m driving makes a big difference. Around town and on back roads I will usually average mid 20s. Driving 80 on interstate i will see 19-20. Driving 65 into a 30+ MPH head wind then I’m down to 17. Haven’t gotten over the magic 30 number since I put larger tires on then stock but to get close cruising around town.

  3. I've towed my 40 hp tractor with snowblower around town, probably weighing around 8000 lbs. Couldn't even tell it was there but didn't do any highway towing with it. Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  4. Have come to find out that colder weather also played a huge role in this numbers. It was pretty cold and windy when I got those numbers. As it's nicer out now in the spring my mileage has been pretty good Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  5. I have about 10,000 miles on mine. Probably just over two tanks of DEF. Minimal towing and hauling but mainly rural roads and around town Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  6. It's amazing how much of a difference the temperature changers my mpg. Between 40 degrees and 20 I swear it's 2 mpg in town. Maybe it's just in my head but my average always goes up on nice days Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  7. I do sometimes miss the sound of a big V-8. Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  8. Got rid of the duratracs today and put a set of cooper AT3 XLTs on. 275/70/18. Have already seen my mileage jump back up. Duratracs are a great tire off road but just don't spend enough time there to justify the negatives Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  9. Well I finally did it. Took of the duratracs for some Cooper AT3 XLT to try and get some mileage back as well as no more road noise. On the way back to the office seemed to be a little better, around 10% it seems, closer to stock. Still running the 275/70/18 Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  10. Also there are no alerts when it happens. I would guess there is an alert after the process gets interrupted after to many times to say you must drive for a prolonged period of time. I have not gotten any message like that yet and I have interrupted the process a few times but typically my next drive is long enough to complete Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  11. The Regen is there to burn if extra soot trapped in the exhaust system. All modern diesels have them. You may not notice every time you go through a Regen. I only notice it when my window is down or I pull into the garage and turn it off and I can smell it as i get out. Doesn't really smell bad, just different, like really hot metal as it has to heat up to over 400 degrees I believe. Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  12. I am running 275/70/18 10 ply. Think they were a 33.1 inch tire. I have a two inch level with two inch rear blocks as well Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  13. I see very similar numbers with mine at speeds above 75 but seem to get around 25-26 at 65-70. I do have larger and much heavier duratracs on mine though. Thinking of switching back to a lighter tire for summer driving. Even with the heavier tires but with this warmer weather still seeing about 22 mpg in town, granted it's small town driving Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  14. This is my first diesel, came from the 6.2L in my 2010. The 3.0L matches the 6.2 if not exceeded it in daily driving and highway, but it's definitely not as fun when you get on it or want to play a bit. I don't miss the premium fuel as in my area it is much more expensive than diesel. The 3.0L is downright quick in town getting around with that low tourqe. Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  15. Here is mine, got it right off the lot as soon as it showed up to the dealer Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
