my truck seems to be buring too much gas.
what can i do to tune/clean up my FI system??

tomorow it gets oil, filters, S plugs, bushbumper, and more, what else should i be doing????

i am a bit heavy on the gas but i think something might be amiss or a bit off, should i change my cap/rotor and or leads?

a "tune up" on a truck seems to be alot dif them on a bike. on a bike you adjust valaves, syncronize the carbs, flush the brk fluid, fork oil, and eng oil. I cant seem to find anything to do on this engine.

i guess my question is what can i do to get the truck running more smothly {not that is running poorly}?

thx alot

filters (air/fuel)
cap & rotor, plugs, wires
O2 sensor (not standard tune up stuff but can cause bad mileage)
timing
injector flush (more $$$)

There is always more but these should help with the mileage a little. That bumper on the other hand is going to drag down your mileage by at least 10mpg, but I suppose that I could take it off your hands if you want.

Just what do you concider bad mileage, its not a honda civic! My last truck only got like 400Km's to a tank, and that was with the 22RE. Although my newer V6 gets like the same mileage, maybe a bit better. Put headers on your truck too, that makes a huge differance, and it will go like snot too... one word... Downey!

I'm only getting about 10mpg or so, I figure if I want a capable truck,it's going to use fuel.
If I had 45 000 bucks I'd buy a new diesel and get 20mpg.
But I don't so I won't.
