Yes. Tried that. Tried s mode and dropping it down a gear, too. All that did was make it downshift more. I got 7 mpg for that tank. Flat interstate.
I got my best, lol, by just putting it drive and letting it shift back and forth. Ski annoying.
To the poster that showed the hp graph, first of all, the graph starts at 4k, rpm. That's useless. Second, it's the torque curve around 2-3k that matters.
I knew something was fishy when I saw the rear end gear was over 4:1 on the tundra. I should have known.
