    Wow Mileage

    The cost factor between reg, and mid range, is minor. I go to another town, 10 min ride, and gas is 20 cents a gal cheaper than the town I live in. I use mid grade, I figure it can't hurt. Here in CT the temp can change 20 to 60 degrees in a day, so every 2nd fill I add 4 oz of sea foam to help...

    Wow Mileage

    I got this batch at the same place, Citgo. The new stuff is from a Mobil. I use mid range, and a few time 93, habit pushing 93 button, for my other cars. Never had any change in mpg till now at the Citgo. Next fill will be there.

    Wow Mileage

    Well I finally got it down to 1/2 tank. Funny, it took 15.7 gallons. Tells me the gage is ok. Mileage back down to 11.7. Double checked all the #'s, and I guess the mileage gods smiled on me for a short time.

    Wow Mileage

    I'm going to try the same pump one more time, 3 times means it's not luck. I use the trip mileage, but I'm going to use both trip, and full. I changed all the motors in the dash, (speed, tach, gas, heat, etc, but that shouldn't affect the odometer. True or not, getting 15.7 puts a smile on my...

    Wow Mileage

    I have a 2004, 3500. 6.0, 4 X 4, with 26K. I do mileage every time I fill up. Average 10-11.5 mpg. I've been going to the same gas station, and 2 times ago I noticed more power. Got it down 1/2 tank, filled it and got 15.7. Got it down to 3/4 tank, took 8 gal, and again 15.7. I'm stumped, but...

    Power steering leak

    pinhole leak at top of the cooler. Cut the cooler off, and by-passed it until I get a new cooler. Seems like a common problem. My truck has 4 radiators, 3 look like new, PS one rusted. Very poor design it doesn't let the water drain away. Thanks for your help 65 sporty. On line around $50, at...

    Power steering leak

    Thanks that's where I'll start in the am I'll go along with rust. The crap they spray on the roads is bad stuff. I just did rear brakes, and rotors. The rotors were so pitted they couldn't be turned. The brake pad slides look like stainless, but their not. I thought the truck would out live me...

    Consul lid replacement

    Just replaced the consul lid on my 2004 3500 Silverado. $44 on Amazon, and an easy job. No need to remove consul. New springs not as strong as OEM, I re used orginals. 24K miles and the plastic hinge self destructed.
