Re: 2005 SUPER DUTY F-350 Torqshift-vs-6 Speed Manual
Wow... Once again, thanks for your detailed answers. I guess my first thought was that the fuel mileage would be 10% worse as well. But I went back to one of your prior posts in this thread and you indicated, "Some DRWs with 4.10 get better fuel mileage than some DRWs with 3.73 pulling the same load across the same terrain."
Can you help me understand how the 4.10 could ever get better fuel mileage than a 3.73, all other things being equal, if the engine on the 4.10 truck is spinning 10% more RPMs?
(Sorry, I know this is somewhat off topic from the original subject of this post.)
