Think about upsizing tires to lower rpm if doing a lot of freeway
Raise psi when on road.
I'll be getting a gauge for sure... Saw a minimal increase with current tires, but all it did was get me back to where I was when the truck was healthy. When these wear down I'll be looking for lighter wheels and taller tires (33" if I don't have to trim fenders). I'd love to get a couple hundred rpm lower @ hwy speeds... In the mean time, I'll see if I can play with basic mechanical and aero

I'm really beginning to like eco-humor
