New to site
Been looking around for ways to improve my mileage, came across this site. Already learned a few things, got some ideas for my truck. Can only go up in my opinion. I have a 84 f150 4x4, I6 carbed. runs good, does decent mileage-wise for a 26 yr old, 6300 lb brick - been getting fairly consistent 15-17 mpg. thats with no aero mods, so I should be able to improve it. My goal is 20 mpg, or higher. I generally go the speed limit (55 mostly), accelerate to speed pretty quick, then ease off keeping vacuum high. sorry, no pics yet.

Hey, Welcome
if you haven't yet come across it have a look at the wiki for car / truck modifications

Car MPG Efficiency Modifications Main - EcoModder

there is also the hypermilling tab if your just after techniques to change your driving habits.

If you have any specific truck related issues you can post issues or ideas on the forum, there are several people with trucks on here.
