I'm running AMSOIL 0W-20 full synthetic, the AMSOIL Ea Air Filter and AMSOIL rear diff fluid. Was actually hoping to see between 16 and 17 for an average, but as I've heard so many times, we didn't buy these trucks for gas mileage.
This ethanol mixture at the pumps is killing the MPG, bottom line.
Did you notice much of a difference after you switched to the AMSOIL fluids and filters? Why do you run 0W-20 in florida? I thought only ppl up north did that because of the cold weather. I am usually happy when i get anything over 13 mpg in my 11 QC 4x4. Although i mostly do a lot of city driving. I run the signature series AMSOIL 5W-20 and i have the air filter ordered.
