Default Is it just my imagination

It seems that after a short time in tow mode towing my boat to storage, I'm back in my regular driving habit (MDS off) my truck just seems more powerful, muffler louder and mileage just a bit better. Is it possible towing just helped loosen up the truck some? I have 2400 miles now on it. Seems like a whole new truck although it was just fine before?

I'd say that's entirely possible. I've had similar experiences with other trucks before. I've also heard a few times that these motors take up to 10k break in. A lot of times working the system harder will certainly give you quicker break in.

Or you could just be crazy.

It could also just be that the trip to the storage was long enough to for the computer to learn the driving style while in Tow Mode & thinks you are still towing
It will re-learn your normal driving style & get less responsive

A friend of mine had a Camaro that had learned his driving style & 1 weekend his 18 year old boy borrowed the Camaro & when my friend got back into it on Monday, the Camaro had seemingly more power then ever before & way less MPG

I'll keep an eye on it this week and see if the truck changes anymore either way. It would be nice to see the truck keep going in this new direction. I wouldn't have to think about any more mods
