Raptor's White Knight Intro!

Hey all. I'm another truck guy in a small car world. I'm not a hardcore "hypermiler" like I've seen, but I'm one to record mileage and watch my SG2 like a hawk, so I thought I'd join.

Vehicle is a POV (Personally-Owned [Emergency] Vehicle) 1998 Ford F-150 SuperCab/ShortBed style in Oxford White. It has a 256 ci (4.2L) pushrod V6, with an est EPA efficiency of 15/19 mpg. I can avg 17, but I've seen as high as 21 before this E10 stuff came along. Mods include a CAI and new tires and also swapped ALL (yes, instrument cluster and HVAC controls too) of my stock incandescent bulbs (all drawing 1.41 amps each) to aftermarket LEDs (at 0.04 amps draw) with swapping from a 55W Halogen headlights system to a 35W HID system for less work on my alternator. Next mods are a tonneau, custom tunes and an e-fan kit to come. I like to take it easy but its kinda hard sometimes, as I'm 17 and you all know how that is... I am also a Vol. Fire Figther, so going Code 3 on calls POV kills my mileage.

I reside in northern Florida and am a current Tech member at F150online.

Oh, and my name is Alex.
