CdnoilRAM: I don't know how coated the tb was but i think i remeber my mechanic saying that it wasn't too bad. i ran a can of sea foam through it before winter. my question is isn't seafoam and injector cleaner the same thing? sorry if thats a dumb question. and I've never heard of putting oil in my gas? how much would i put in?

DodgeRamMan71: those sound just about like my same plans! except I'm really looking into making my own CAI but going to wait still i can atleast work out side with a sweatshirt which looks like it will be coming soon! you also make a good point when i put my rims and bigger tires on with a leveling kit i didn't expect my mpgs to go up any lol

I knew when I was purchasing a full size truck I should expect worse fuel economy than in my S-10. I've had the truck about a week and a half and MPG is just under 12 with mostly city driving. I have a feeling using the remote start every morning might affect this? not sure if the computer takes fuel used while at idle in park into account on it's MPG calculations.
