    There was another thread here, but why don't we keep our old numbers? So many are coming over here that I wouldn't want to get someone's number.

    HA. I would have to bet they do return better mileage, that is if you guys knew how to drive a standard!:biggrinjester: but of all the vehicles I have hauled with.. the allison really takes the cake when you want the convience of an auto and the control of a standard! How much reliable power will it hold up(zf6)? I am running around with the 150hp tune without any issue(never limped) but I really don't "beat" the truck, when I do everything is up to operating temp.

    I just returned 18 all stop and go city and I return between 22-24mpg highway, speed dependent.:hurray: then again the programmer made a decent difference in my mileage.

    Jcool: Don't get me started :lol:. I have never owned an auto and I know well how to drive a manual :D. I started driving one at 5yrs old. A 67 C20.

    On topic ZF's are very tough. I've seen a couple broken ones like ZF Man said but they were just inputs. I know one guy is running over 750/1400 currently and another guy that must be pushing 900+.

    Jcool, don't stir the pot with the handshakers, they're loyal to their stuff. Seriously though they do get a lot better mileage.

    Speaking of handshakers, has anyone told 4WARNED (from "over there") about this site? Darius is a good guy.

    I just PM'd quite a few of them. Won't hurt if more than one of us does it.
