RE: Ford 7.3 chipped mileage

No onboard calculator on the 99 XLT. My 12 towing 16 highway is cruising at 60 MPH. 4.10s start to hurt much past that. Thanks for the info. I'll probably keep the engine as is. The tranny shifts hard, real hard and I suspect its from the Diablo chip tune. Have the brand chip in a 96 mustang and it did increase line pressure.

RE: Ford 7.3 chipped mileage

Thanks. The truck is primarily used to tow highway and haul junk around town so I've only used it on the highway empty a couple of times, but 16 is all I see. Towing has ranged from 11.5 - 13 depending on the weather. It's hard to imagine an engine that size with 4.10s, DRW and 4 tons getting into the 20s, but it would be worth the $400 programmer if it did. Towing mileage is decent and that's the one that matters the most to me. Doesn't hurt that our TT is only 9'2" tall.

Ford 7.3 chipped mileage

I have a '99 F-350 dually, 4.10 rear, 4x2, that 3 years old to us. It has a Diablo sports chip in it that is not self programmable. Owner said it was tuned for towing and the chip is so old that Diablo can't tell me anything about it. I get 16 mpg unloaded on the highway and about 12 loaded/towing 7,000 lbs TT. I've seen people claim 23 mpg highway and 17 towing with the same truck, but with different tuners. Can this truck really get much better mileage with a different chip or are people using special math?

RE: Any chance for Topsail without a ressie?

In Oct, chances are decent Monday-Thursday. You will be pushing your luck on the weekends.

RE: Need Honeymoon Destination help!

No one has mentioned a beach. Topsail should be a consideration. It's a days drive from Northern LA.

RE: Camping Florida for 1st time

Here's a big loop: Fort Clinch, Anastasia, Gamble Rogers, Ft Wilderness, Ft Desoto, Rainbow Springs, Manatee Springs, Top Sail, Caverns. Several in between, but this is a taste of different beaches, springs, and Disney. Yes its hot, but this is when the fishing is good.

RE: Generator Options for Boondocking

A pair of these http://www.championpowerequipment.com/category-5/73537i/ run our 13.5k A/C. They have the same noise rating as the Hondas; quiet at idle, but do make noise at full throttle. I got the kit (two gens, 30 amp plug kit, two covers) for under $1100 delivered and that made it a worthy purchase. I like Honda, but like a $1k savings even more. They seem to work well so far...

RE: Walt Disneyworld Area park advice?

If trying online, expand your booking dates for FW and see what comes available. Be surprised how one week is booked, but 3 weeks are open. Book, then call back later and prune down the days. It's crazy how they work the bookings.

RE: Mid to South Florida ....Does this campground exist?

Sun N Fun comes to mind. Wifi is okay there. They have lots of pool activities for extra fees and it can add up quickly. Recommend the wibit at least once.

RE: Florida RV Park/State Park on the Ocean

It's all about what you prefer. For me Topsail Hill is an over regulated abomination of a state park and Grayton Bch is the true Florida beach experience that we enjoyed in another time. I may never go back to Seaside, traffic creeps at 5 mph and everything is over priced. Those of us who are old enough to remember and grow up pre rat invasion just have different preferences I guess. LOL. Growing up near the shadows of the rat, I can fully appreciate this statement.

RE: Fort wilderness for the Disney marathon

I'm tired from just reading this.

RE: Snowbird in Fla

Define waterfront? A view of the Gulf is few and far between and are $100+ a night; Red Coconut in Ft Myers is one. Inshore waters or being a few miles from the beach open up the options quite a bit.
