Good. Going to watch the brick house meet on FEBRUARY 3rd cause most of my gym will be competing in it, lot of my friends. Itíll give me experience too seeing a meet so then I know what to expect when I do my first.

Deciding to get a strength coach has vastly improved my gains.

I donít know if this is the best idea , probably not.. but why not just buy a POS vehicle off kijiji for a couple hundred bucks and park it in front of it? Then they have to move that car to get it out of the way. If you want even harder jack the beater up, take the tires off and put it on the ground. Now watch them try and drag that thing out. They would have to REALLY want your car. Then come summer take it to bucks they usually give couple hundred for whole cars anyways.

Streetfocus , you removed your front sway bar right? I was thinking of removing mine as well and heard lots of pros and cons. How is yours driving? Is it worth it

IE: I asked about a no start a Couple weeks ago, didn't get much response so I dropped it and figured it out myself.

Pretty sure before I started talking about my truck in this thread the last post was from somewhere in 2012. So I donít think so.

You've been asking how to improve it since you've got the truck. Pretty sure its come up on every 1 of the last 50 pages of this thread lol.

Because I donít know why itís so bad it just doesnít make sense.
Besides this thread is pretty dead regardless. If it werenít for me posting about my truck and then streetfocus commenting this thread would die and then be resumed in a year or more. Unsub to it if you donít feel like talking about trucks in a truck thread. I wouldnít complain about someone talking about their truck. I donít even know what half the people in this truck thread drive cause no one talks about them.

Maybe you should consider selling it if you're going to bitch about it that much.

Maybe if you donít like it that much donít come on.
This is a truck thread and Iím updating my gas mileage and asking what I can do to improve it.
$70-$90 a week in fuel isnít going to break the bank thanks.

I donít know how I got that. Maybe those bottles I put in cleaned it out cause my best was 16mpg summer highway and usually I get around 13.5/14 highway summer.
But yes right now 100% city with short commutes. So fire it up, let it warm up briefly . Drive , shut it down. Do it again.

I take highway 15 east out of winnipeg, then jump onto 302 after anola and head north to beausejour, then head east on 44, then north on 11, then east on 307. pretty simple drive.

but anyways, yeah 16 mpg mostly highway, did a bit of driving around in winnipeg but 90% highway. at 120 kmh most the time.

Sounds a lot like the route I took but it started taking me down these random roads too.

Thatís pretty good!! My best was summertime all highway I got 16 on the dot.

I didn't leave the trail till about 2:00 pm. It's only an 8 km hike but I stopped a lot for photos so it took me a bit longer to do than normal..

I didnít even make it to the park. Google maps took me down some road thing that was about a solid 8 inches plus of snow and I drove about a mile down and looked to only get worse so I back tracked cause I didnít need to get stuck in the middle of no where

Thatís really good. I think mines probably off a bit cause of the diameter. Itís close though.

I followed google maps.... lmao. I never been anywhere out there. I didnít leave the city till 11 though. Maybe we passes on the highway at some point.

Drove to whiteshell park and back today. Put two of those cleaners in the tank even though one is good for 79L I figured 2 of them would be stronger. Surprisingly I got 15.8mpg the on that trip. The best I ever got was in the summer all highway too 16.0 so to see that in the winter is surprising

Donít get me wrong guys I fully anticipated getting a truck to pay for bad gas mileage but getting 9MPG in a ranger I kinda feel ripped off. I feel like I could drive a much bigger truck for less or the same. Like a 1500 or 2500.
Just makes me sad .. lol. Should I put a bunch of sea foam in the tank or something ?

Bad plugs maybe. Clean MAF sensor. Sea foam the heck out of it. The truck runs great. Lots of power. No real issue.
Lots of ranger online get bad gas mileage too so I donít know. I hate it though lol . Love the truck but 9MPG from a compact/midsize ?

The wife's GX470 pulled down a solid mid 12mpg the last 2 tanks, all highway travelling for the holidays, which is awful as well but at least it's got full time AWD and a V8 to justify the ****ty returns.

Land Cruiser is still getting 15mpg on daily driver duty in this cold, webasto pre-heater helps out bigtime!

Iím super jealous that your Land Cruiser gets 15mpg. I can only dream of that.

Yeah I hate it... a lot. It was even bad in the summer though.

Anyone familiar with kumho?

I was looking at their tires before for my car and on paper they seem like solid tires.

This tire in particular Iím now looking at for my truck, the kumho KL71s. Theyíre only $900 for 4 and some reviews say that theyíre an underrated tire and can preform just as good as the top dogs, but other reviews say they suck, or they wear immensely. So what I figured is these tires SEEM to be more popular with the EURO crowd cause their patrols are light, and here in NA the rigs these guys run , land cruisers , pickups etc and very very heavy hence why itís beating these tires up fast.

So with a 4000lbs ranger they should be decent I think?

Iíd like to hear any of your guys experiences with KUMHO or and friends of yours experiences.

Cheers!
