My wife and I have been full time for the last 14 months. We have a 2006 Winnebago Voyage 38J. It has a workhorse w24 chassis, 8.1 Chevy with 5 speed Allison transmission. Since we started our journey now about 9,900 miles so far, the dash computer shows 11.7 average mpg. The coach fully loaded was weighed at 23,450, we tow a dolly with a 2012 Toyota Prius C, 2,626 for the car and 1,120 for the dolly. Gross weight combined being 27,196. Coach GCWR is 30,000 so we are much under that. We cruise at 60 mph and the engine is at 2,100 rpm on cruise control on interstate highways.

I also got a OBDlink MX wifi and use Dash command to read real time data from the engine. Lets me see MPG as I am driving(not counting generator) and other things like transmission temp, looks cool too: -obd-ii-gauge-dashboards/id321293183?mt=8

All of our dyno graphs are measurements at the rear wheels, whereas Ford's advertised measurements are "flywheel," meaning engine disconnected from any running gear. The reason for the horsepower differences between the 2014 and the 2018 is because of the type of transmission. On the 2014 we are not able to put it in 4th gear which is 1:1 engine to transmission ratio. We have to run in 3rd gear which adds a multiplication of power thus showing different #'s. The most important thing is the apples to apples comparison.

The tuning greatly improves the shifting of the transmission. Not only does the added power help it maintain gears, we also are able to calibrate the transmission shift points to more suit the RV application.

Yes, the UltraPower Tuning will greatly reduce the downshifting characteristics of the transmission. Engine performance, throttle response and transmission control will be much improved overall. As a rule we do not compare ourselves to our competitors as what we do is geared specifically to RV's only whereas everyone else focuses on automotive but offers RV support.

How is the 6.2L going to replace the V10? If the pricing is the same as the upgrade in the upcoming F-150 SVT Raptor over the 5.4L, $3000, versus a $600 upgade for the V10, then that's no replacement. As far as the 6-speed making up for the lost torque, you can already get a six speed, a manual, which is all I want anyway, so no improvement there. I just test drove a Tundra, and although the power is there, the torque is not. You just can't move that much weight without a torquey engine, and have it feel good.

Audi's A6 returns for 2010 as the company's full-size offering, with a number of different models giving performance, luxury and versatility in a streamlined package.The A6 comes in several different trim levels, including Premium, Premium Plus and Prestige, with each offering more standard goodies than the last. A range of different engines are available as well, starting with the 3.2-liter V6 offered in the front-wheel drive A6 sedan, making 265 horsepower and achieving an estimated 18 mpg city and 27 mpg highway. The 3.0T supercharged V6 makes 300 horsepower and is available in both A6 sedan and Avant wagon configurations. It utilizes direct injection as well as a Roots-style supercharger with two contra-rotating 4-vane shafts, delivering a maximum boost of 11.5 psi through twin water-to-air intercoolers. The 4.2-liter, 350-hp V8 also returns as an option on the sedan, while the S6 again comes with a version of the Lamborghini Gallardo's 5.2-liter V10, which makes 435 horsepower.The 3.2-liter V6 comes with Audi's front-wheel drive system, known as FrontTrack, as well as Audi's Multitronic electronically-controlled continuously variable transmission. The 3.0-liter V6 and 4.2-liter V8 in the A6 and the 5.2-liter V10 in the S6 come standard with a Tiptronic manually-controllable 6-speed automatic and the legendary Quattro all-wheel drive system, and a Dynamic Shift Program offers over 200 different shift programs to suit a variety of drivers. Quattro sends 60% of engine torque to the rear wheels and 40% to the front. The A6 benefits from large-diameter shocks and sporty yet supple spring rates to help smooth out ride quality over a variety of surfaces. Both a 4-door sedan and an Avant wagon are offered in the A6, each offering comfortable seating for five, but the Avant adds excellent versatility as well, offering 33.9 cubic feet of cargo space. Inside, the A6 features the third generation of Audi's Multi Media Interface system (MMI), which features two control units. The unit features excellent graphics, with a sophisticated look and great contrast, and a joystick on top of the controller knob allows for fast navigation through the system. A lane assist feature is also available, which monitors the A6's position in its lane and alerts the driver through steering wheel vibrations if the car comes close to running off the road. Also optional is a blind-spot warning indicator, which flashes an amber light in the side mirror when another car has pulled alongside.

Two years after the release of the Gallardo Coupe supercar, Lamborghini have released their drop-top version. Beyond no top, the Spyder a number important modifications to the original engine and transmission.

With its new engine, permanent four-wheel drive transmission and new suspension, the Gallardo LP 560-4 was a clearly improved performance and dynamic machine. A substantial facelift and mid-cycle refresh. 041b061a72
