New owner of 97 Dodge 5spd 2wd. Any suggestions to get the best mpg's possible. 1st, I will remove the heavy utility box for a standard box again. Gears are unknown at this time. I think 4.10s. Needs tires so I was thinking some nice tall pizza cutters might help. This thing was my finall paycheck from a previous employer. Funds will be a little tight for awhile, but I would really like to make a nice daily driver out of it.
AIR AIR AIR! Get that stock box outta there, go down to your local autozone, pick up a $20 aftermarket air cleaner, 3 & 4 inch compatible I think it is, and stick it in the end of you stock air cleaner hose. Wam Bam awesome turbo whistle and 3 MPG. Next is exhaust..
It's ready for a service anyway so this will be a good time for the new air filter. How mush more fuel can I add before my economy goes to hell? I have been looking at the #11 power kit from TST products. My theory is to increase power, lower engine RPM's by being able to drive in a higher gear at lower speeds. A rear end gear swap will most likely be in my future.
For the most part this will be just a commuter. Occasionally the boat will get drug along. I have grown up enough now that I don't need to blow smoke but running over the occasional rice burner is just plain fun.
Had the truck up on the hoist today. 3.54 gears. I thnk that I will leave them in for now and see how I end up using the truck. Wanted to do some of the free mods on pump but ended up chasing electrical problems instead. The truck has been sitting for 3 years after the shop mechanic said that the injector pump was bad. It really pissed him off when I opened the hood, flipped the fuel shut off up and drove it home.
My aneroid experience is on a JD 6030 tractor that had a p pump. I understand the basics of how it works but have a lot to learn. I am trying to find info here but there is just so much to sort through.
Thanks for the link. VERY GOOD STUFF!!!!
