The noticeable limits to enter lean burn seem to be:

1. warm engine driven for a mile or two at higher speeds. If I EOC, it takes a mile or two to get back into lean burn.

2. TPS (throttle position sensor) to be 19% or less.

3. LOD (engine load) to be 65 or less

4. RPM (I saved this one for last as I see two different RPM limits. AKA good mood, and bad mood.

I will start the "bad mood" lean burn. If the above conditions are met and I am at 2500 rpm, I will go into lean burn 100% of the time.

Good mood RPM limits engage around 1900-2000 rpm and can stay in anyware from 1800 - 3100 rpm. I can get into this when I first get on the highway and the engine first hits optimal temp. Once in I am able to stay in for 200+ miles If I fall out from hitting a traffic jam, it is hit or miss if I can get back in. Normally I am not able to get back in this good mood RPM lean burn.

The noticeable limits to stay in lean burn seem to be:

1. Steady throttle. try not to make any sudden changes

2. TPS (throttle position sensor) to be 12% to 30%. Go to low and it enters DFCO, go to high and it will kick out.

3. LOD (engine load) to be 90 or less

4. RPM Bad mood - 2400 - 3100
RPM Good mood - 1800 - 3100
