I'm thinking I could deal with that - getting sweet MPG and havin a full size truck to tool around in.    I'd probably keep the 6.4 Turbosmoker just for the nostalgia and i got a couple of soon to be drivers that wanna keep grampa's truck .

did this after resetting the evic computer on my way to work.  41 miles to work, mostly interstate 94 in WI, but about 7-10 miles of small town, rural highway with some hills.

Why is the oil temp gauge pegged?
I understand the dilemma. Correct spelling takes time that could be spent licking the windows on the short bus.

Oil temp is right in the middle.

26.5 mpg according to fuelly over 1600 miles tracked so far.  Not too shabby.  Phantom, I think you were looking at the DEF gauge, it's on the lower left hand of the picture.

Yeah... looks like it has both oil can and temp gauge icons...

oil temp icon is on the low left of the screen and coolant temp is upper left.  It's what I had tried to configure, it's prolly kind of hard to read.  DEF guage is not in that picture.

I got sucked into the RAM.  :punk:

I got the gasser version. 400 HP / 400 FT LBS Torque.

Exciting as I haven't had a new car in 12 long years.

I just converted mine over to coal.  Anyone need a slightly used EGR valve?

If you squeeze that EGR valve between your butt cheeks for long enough, it will turn into a diamond....

and confuse the he11 out of the lie-o-meter.   it was a liar before this mod - like saying 19mpg but when you fill it up and do the math its really more like 16mpg. 

Now the big liar tells me I'm gettin 22mpg and I'm like "that would be sweet"  fill up the tank and am disappointed with 17mpg on the math equation.  Seems like the E to F gauge takes longer to travel tho.  I like the part when it tells me I have 537 miles until empty.

HP is cool tho.   and that turbine sound coming out of the exhaust - beast.   And now I got the "Cloud' too - rock on
