Oh yea, one of my neighbors passed me on the road and said I need a bigger trailer. He thought an airstream would look good behind it
The problem with a direct injection engine is the gasoline detergents can not clean the intake manifold because gas does not pass through the manifold. Ford feeds the crankcase gases into the intake manifold and they are apparently the source of dirty intake manifolds. There are aftermarket manufacturers that sell a filter system to collect the oils/etc. from the crankcase gas before the air enters the intake manifold. Does anyone have experience with one of these filters? Seems to be a logical improvement.
As to the non-MPG issues everyone is starting to discuss, would it be possible to keep this thread focused on MPG's for this specific power train? Here are some other threads which discussed other MPG issues, different rear ends, Tier1 gas, etc..
Thanks in advance for everyone's understanding that having a narrow focus here will permit a fuel-efficient discussion . . .
As nice as that concept sounds Peter, it just never ends up working that way in forums. For example, this morning in my email I had a notice that I was quoted by Orton. I clicked on the link and saw what he posted, and replied to it. In a perfect forum world before replying I would have first gone to the complete thread to get an idea of the true topic, then decided if my thoughts were appropriate for the one I was quoted in, and if not started a search for a better one or created a new one. Never gonna happen.
The most active and informative forums are ones where most of the participants read all new posts, scanning quickly, and responding often. Trying to keep people on topic etc. will just reduce the activity here.
Nothing wrong with having a few specific MPG threads etc, but there will always be a few off topic posts in them, still, it's not like this forum will turn into a spam fest or anything.
