awe crap. I hadn't considered that. I guess I'm wondering, if you didn't change anything else, how much worse would your MPG get with a lift of 2" - 3". I'd love to buy the longest version of transit instead of my medium length one, but as you can see in the picture, I'd need some kind of lift to get that extra 3 feet of booty into my drivewayI assume you changed the wheels or tire size, or both, so the MPG calculation will be off and your MPH reading.
Download a MPH app for your phone and do a test drive to compare the instrumentation reading to the app MPH.
How's the gap between your duallies with those larger tires? Are you using stock rims? Thanksi installed 215 85 16 hankook dynapro atm and the Foes 2 inch lift. I have a 350hd (dually) with ecoboost. now i m very easy on the van and drive very gently for good mpg and i gain about 1mpg with the taller tires as the rpm is lower at cruise speeds.
i was very suprised with this. my stock tire were 195 75 16 i beleive so i went from a 27.5 diameter to 30.4.
so far...very happy. gas is also changing here in canada with summer blend and it s better mpg vs winter so perhaps that is playing into the equation but i 100% havent lost any mpg with those mods.
Just having a lift should not change mpg in most driving. Maybe at speed there would be some change due to aerodynamics but i doubt you could measure it.Bumping this for any updates on MPG with lifts and/or larger tires.
No, but you can get pretty close using free Forscan software and the right OBDII adapter.Does anyone know of a company that makes a computer to re flash the ecu with the tire size you are running? I know allot of the tuners for trucks can do this, but unaware if there is as much support for the transit.
