My Travels - Gas Ford Tioga
by: Anonymous

I have a 1987 Ford Tioga with a 460 Engine she is fully loaded with all my stuff as I live in mine and travel everywhere. she does fine except on steep grades of 9% or better tends over heat a bit. I am not pulling anything on the back she did however make it up to MT Rushmore which is a 11% grade and I did drive the grapevine in California and Mesa Verda in Colorado and drove the Tetons in Wyoming . If you take it slow and use the granny gear she does all I ask her to do

I put a bottle of Octane boost in every other fill up especially if its the EC86 gas she does not like to run well on that I get about 12 mpg which is better than most diesels
just keep her tuned up and I don't carry the water tanks or grey n black tanks are always empty when climbing
