Last week I thought I was out of gas. The truck stalled out and once I gassed her up, we drove home. I was a little surprised, since I have put gas in several times, a gallon or two here or there, and I have only driven 60 miles in the five months since I have had it home. The truck has also idles for a few hours in the drive way during that time.
Still, if I have added 15 gallons of gas, and only driven 60 miles, then I am getting exactly CRAPPY miles to the gallon.
After a little family drive the other night that ended with pulling the truck home, I am now convinced that I was never out of gas in the first place. There is some other fuel problem. Possibly rust in the tank.
I installed a fuel filter a while back. This weekend I'll remove it to see if it is clogged up. Hopefully that is all it is.
