Re: 460 gas milage help

Do you have any more info. for us? Did you just get this truck? Have you had it for a long time, and mileage just started getting bad? Does the truck have any running/driving issues? Is there a 'check engine' light on?

A good tune up would be in order, then see if it improves. Let us know your results.

Even after a tune-up and new air filter, and timing adjustments, you may gain 2mpg at best.

Re: 460 gas milage help

Do you mean the temp always stays at the 1/4 mark? Even at start-up and when engine is warm?

Re: 460 gas milage help

I think the temp hand is working.It moves up to aquater after it gets hot.That is why i am wondering if the coputer is geting the right reading.o2senser looks like it has never been replaced.
