New Guy
 
Howdy all, I have always been a efficiency type of person. Previous vehicle contained a stand-alone computer and tuned only by me, achieved average fuel mileage of 47.5mpg with mixed daily driving. This was in a 05 MazdaSpeed MX-5 (Factory Turbo). I now am driving a 09 Dodge Ram 2500 SLT QCSB. I am around 22mpg at the moment with a Raceme Ultra. Yes, I require 4x4 and I also have the G56 6 speed. I haven't drove an automatic in 8 years, so sad they are being phased out with less efficient transmissions. I have a vast amount of automotive experience in the OEM world as an electrical/mechanical engineer. Now I am a seed salesman, hope to learn from you guys!

That sounds pretty neat. Makes some posts about those builds.

The MSM was a 1.8L factory turbocharged Miata. I had a Hydra stand-alone, Greddy EBC, 3" turbo-back exhaust, 6 puck ceramic unsprung clutch holding onto a 8.5lb flywheel. Was an absolute blast to drive with 393hp and 387ft-lbs of torque. I didn't do much to the engine besides injectors, intake and clutch. Had a tree fall on it and decided it wasn't worth the insurance claim so decided to get another pickup (previous was a 98 Dodge Ram 3500 12V Cummins dually that achieved 28-32 mpg unloaded and fuel pump tuned by myself). Eventually, I will be making a tubular chassis and full fiberglass body to stuff the MSM drive-train components into with a goal of around 1500 lbs and a much better COD than the .36 the MSM had.

Any other questions, feel free to ask. Looking into custom tuning my pickup, but they all want an arm and a leg to get the software.

Welcome!

Those are mighty impressive mpg's for that car. You must be pretty knowledgeable on how to drive it to squeeze that kind of mileage out of it!

Great work.
