I wouldn't know what to do if I only drove 12 miles.

It takes a little getting used to seeing "655 miles to empty" on the fuel display.

I've had the escalade show 580. It's got a 31 gallon tank.

Indeed. On my '16 Grand Cherokee, I usually get over 500 miles per tank. Best tank was 585 miles.

I have 42 gallon capacity on my Suburban.

I'm glad it has a big tank

Sure glad they wrote "Digital Speedometer" on the display. I wouldn't have known what it was otherwise.

Very nice, Marcus!!!
That 3.5 EB is a great motor but you should check out the tuner from Livernois Motorsports.
It pulls an extra ~100 hp and 125 lb/ft tq as long as you're running 92+ octane.

Also has a couple tow tunes in it.

I was at 571 miles to go when I pulle in my driveway. Looks like you have a 17 with the 10 speed, how is it?. I sniped probably one of the few remaining 16s in the area.

Good to know, but does it void warranty? Tony?

Get a boost max from JMS. It's a leave in module that goes in the ALDL port. It leaves no signature on the computer.

First couple hundred miles it is in it's "learning" stage, and hunts for gears. Once you get past that, you can't tell a difference from any other transmission.

Oh yes. Ford does NOT like tuners on their vehicles. You can't just put it back to stock either, they can tell it has been tuned.

That's what I've read, seems to have overall good reviews.

The JMS boostmax leaves no signature as it doesn't modify the code written on the computer. It sends a command similar to a tech 2
