- Aug 1, 2008Lol. Yup, That would do it.
I use the wifes car when I'm not towing. That improves my fuel economy by
quite a bit.
Every option to improve fuel economy has its draw backs and advantages.
Have to weight the pros and cons to see if it is cost effective. And so far.
I have determined for me...It isn't cost effective. Especially since my old
suburban works just fine as it is and I don't have the extra $ laying around
right now to consider the changes.
I have considered an Over drive add on tranny versus replacing the tranny
with one that has an over drive as well as high air flow intake and exhaust
systems, etc... and have found form my research that I might improve my fuel
economy by maybe 1 or 2 mpg. (would take me a life time to see the return on
the cost) I can get better than that by slowing down to 55 mph and that
doesn't cost me any more than just a bit of driving time and irritates those
that like to go fast in the slow lane.
