It is standard 4cyl no changes. Would anybody be able to tell me if a injection cut off switch and anything else help MPG?
Is there anyway that a person make the pickup get the great MPG that is at 4500 feet do so at low altitudes??? I would like to know
Thanks

yes, install an electric Efan(gets rid of the heavy clutch fan) and underdrive pullies.

frees up some hp and torque which means it can get applied to the wheels instead of wasted.

my 95 routenely gets 29 in the summer with those mods + CAI and header.

the 98+ 4 bangers got a head and intake change that gets better mpg so your golden there.

btw im at 400ft above sea level and use E10 fuel.

also DRAFT trucks. i got 42 mpg in mine drafting a charter bus for 3 hours. used about 3.5 gallons of gas haha. thought my fuel guage finnaly broke.

just an FYI these trucks have fuel pump issues due to overheating and cracking. DO NOT let it get below 1/4 tank! its a $300 part alone if you DIY.


anyways back on topic yea they have some of the few stations around here listed. lol some of the comments are just funny...especially the one about E10 shouldn't be stored more than 2 weeks....LOL

Re: List of stations providing ethanol free fuel

How are these gas stations able to get ethanol free gas? I thought it was federally mandated to put ethanol in the fuel?

Re: List of stations providing ethanol free fuel

There's now a station that's somewhat local to me that has ethanol free! I make my way through here about once a week. I guess this is where I'll be buying most of my fuel now...



After getting home I checked my average MPG, and I was shocked. over 38 MPG, and I crossed two mountains on the way home after filling up!

Re: List of stations providing ethanol free fuel

Well it is like 40 miles away, and I have to cross 2 mountains to get there... I do end up in that area about once a week though, so I should be able to make this a regular fuel stop.

Re: List of stations providing ethanol free fuel

Great find! I discoverd a couple here in my area that I didn't know about. I use a station near my house that is right outside of a marina. They sell nothing but ethanol free gas in all 3 grades since boaters prefer their gas to be free of ethanol. I know of several boat owners who have had engine work done due to running gas with ethanol. Also I had to have work done to my lawn mower due to running ethanol gas.

Re: List of stations providing ethanol free fuel

I found an ethanol free gas station about 20 miles away. The problem is that 87 octane is 50 cents per gallon higher than 10% ethanol.
I did buy some for my lawnmower though.

Arrow Re: List of stations providing ethanol free fuel

The stations in my area that have ethanol free charge $0.06 to $0.10 extra for ethanol free, which is well worth it for the mileage gains that I get with ethanol free.

Re: List of stations providing ethanol free fuel

The closest station to me on that site only sells it by the 5 gallon jug for around $6+ a gallon. It's also high (93+) octane.

There is also an automotive performance shop in the town north of me that sells methanol and other racing fuels. Likely for similar prices.
