Wife fueled the Truck!!

Recommended Posts

Kids moving again. Wife used the truck & actually fueled it before bringing it home! (I've been stressing about not letting the fuel get low, which I'm convinced is harder on the lift pump.) She actually loaded the TCW3 "D. fuel additive" premeasured in a quart bottle in the door pocket... Just when you think there's no hope... RPS. Original yellow TCW3 oil bottles are now marked as above with marker.

that is the trick. everyone looks at me stupid when they see me pull a trans fluid bottle out and pour it in the tank(i buy the wally world gallon). i have even toyed with the idea with painting the fuel lid green. maybe a little sticker.:cool:

I originally bought yellow Pensoil Marine quarts & refilled from a gallon bought on sale at Wally's. Lately I've been buying the 1 gallon blue jug... the yellow quarts show marker really well.To fit in the door pocket it must be compressed a bit in the middle. I figured out the correct ounces (+1) plus a bit of crush room for a typical refill. I loosen the cap, bleed the air, retighten the cap to reduce leakage. An extra oz of oil covers any inaccuracy. I carry 2 of the premeasured containers in the driver's side door pocket & 2 more on the passenger's. I seldom use more fuel than the first 2 on a trip but I don't want to screw up. As before, I'll not get into a discussion again... Repeat after me "My fuel additive".Russ

Yes, 128:1 (or a pinch over). Fuel station not the place to be messing with measuring.

Me too!! I don't want my wife driving my truck (she gets hit on too much, even with 2 kids in it).. :banghead::lmao: Let alone do I want her to fuel it.. I mean there is additives to add, and data to record (you know..date, odo, miles, gallons, price, cost, engine hours, trip hours, o/h mpgs, miles towing, trailer towed, usage for tank), then you have to fill the equations in on the spreadsheet that tell you mpgs, total cost, avg speed, cost per mile, o/h error (actual and %age), towing %age.... The wife would just say i am a dork and not do any of it :tease:

Unfortuanately, my wife as does many women......continually function in the "getRdone" mode. This mode is not restricted to all women and many men use it as well. :lol: Hence why the ONLY guage she has in the cab is the fuel pressure gauge that is mounted on the top of the steering column. My wife would use data logs for compost in the garden. :lmao::lmao2::lol::cookoo:

ATF.........shame on you!!!!!!:nono::nono: Let's Edge-U-Mu-Cate guys!!!!!:smart: Years ago, ATF was essentially just "light hydraulic" fluid. Nowadays with more modern AT's, the tranny's need a more "robust" ATF with all kinds of additives etc. Those "additives", are not good to burn in your engine. Others will post with more info if'n you don't believe me!!!:tongue:

I agree 1000%, modern ATF is designed specifically NOT to burn, and has a combustion temp 3-4x higher than diesel. So at low combustion temps (ie. idle, low cruise) the ATF combustion is incomplete which can lead to deposits and nasty crap on your injectors.

If your looking for more lube for your truck, not sure what year?, then look at 2-stroke for the 24V, and one of the popular diesel additives for HPCR's.

One of those additive is a anti-scorching compound to allow the ATF fluid to take on high heat from the torque convertors. Then the fricition modifiers that help make the clutch packs stick better. Dorkweed and AH64ID ar both right ATF is NOT intended yo burn not like 1970's... Then the other problem is it dyes the fuel red which in turn might it you in trouble with Johnny Law...:rolleyes: Yes in Idaho I heard of a few random check on farm trucks... :stuned:

I would think that farm trucks would be targeted by the ball busters, since farms might just have off-road tanks hanging about. Pitty that!I have an off-road diesel (JD410) but if & when I run it, it gets the same fuel as my truck. Just too much bother for it's anual fill up. Speaking of which, it's time to start it again. I saw an off-road pump at at fuel company when I was buyng clear kero for space heaters. Colored kero clogs the wicks up when we go camping. I'd burn more in fuel, going to get it, than I would save in tax... Russ
