Good power, good mpg
#1
I wanted to share my current setup on my 2009 equator cc 4x2 with any of you guys looking to maybe add a little more econ to your rig. I know its not a frontier but its pretty darn close. I am planning to move the mods over to my 2011 pro4x when I take delivery next week. Every mod purchase I made I had to justify the spending by a little bump in mpg. I drove from New Bern, NC to Boise, ID with no mods but a lund trifold bed cover and averaged 21.7mpg keeping an average of 68.7mph (according to the garmin.) When I moved to Boise I added a Jet TBS, a Injen Cai, and had a magnaflow muffler welded in to replace the OEM. On a trip to Seattle averaging 69.4mph(same garmin) I managed to average 24.9mpg. I consistantly average 22-23mpg to a tank(75% hwy- 25% in town) Both trips were done in the spring with similar temps. I have been really pleased with the performance gains as well as bump in mpg. I know I am going to lose maybe a couple mpgs going to the 4x4 pro4x but it is totally worth it. I plan on the same set up, plus a programmer, and I might go dual 2.25" exhaust. I will let you know how it changes. Oh and I have run mobil 1 synthetic since new. Last talk on programmers was quite a while ago, anything I should know about or is the hypertech the way to go for under $350. I can get the max energy with econ for 319.99 on autoanything,com with free shipping.
