Apparently the stock intake system is relativly poor on the power stroke, because it did increase the mileage by 2, turbocharged diesels suck a whole lot of air, that being said, I have not seen as much gain on a non turbo engine. I have one on my Frontier, Tundra, F250 with the 5.4 triton gas motor, and a 37' southwind with the 460 V8 with marginal increases. But when you drive 50,000 miles a year, marginal adds up! As for the 99 F350 Powerstroke, the engine outlasted the truck, that is why I no longer will pay that premium for a diesel, plus diesel fuel is so much more expensive now that the advantage of a diesel is not that great anymore.

As a long-time motorcycle rider, I never worried too much about vehicles approaching from the rear and had to accept the fact it was OK for people to close quickly and pass. For some reason, I never had the urge to calculate my mileage but believe the shift in my mindset made difference in the frequency of refills.

We just got back from N.J. to Fla. and back 1970 miles and averaged 8.5 with toad. The 2001 V-10 has full Banks with Trans Comm. We keep it under 65 as Hondas toad says 65 or less with out any problems.The 2001 V-10 with the Banks has all the power and torq. I need.I try to keep cruise control on as much as possible but I will kick it out on hills if it looks to drop RPM below 2300 as it will kick down on its own and push RPM up to 3500- 4000 and scare the SH## out of me.
