Hi Matt,

I get the same thing from people, even when the results are right there in front of them.

This weekend, I was at a Hydro Race, I live stream the event and use the generator for power.

On my other thread I describe in detail but the short story is that it is a 3KW generator, 4 gallon gas tank. I purchased 5 gallons fuel for the weekend.
Saturday, I filled the tank and ran it from 10am to 6pm. Sunday, I ran the generator from 9am to 3pm.
Doing the math that is 14 hours of run time on a generator that per manufacturer spec will only run 9 hours. Through personal experience with this generator pre-groove I could only get 6 hours out of a 4 gallon tank.

The guy next to me watching the races... looking for any "logical" reason for it to get those results, other than the groove.

Go figure

Where is the report on this one, Karl?

You will all hear the following from me on a regular basis until you are all following my lead.

Now, you are all doing the paperwork, aren't you? I've gone to great lengths to give you guys everything you need to be successful, but most aren't using the tools! Here's the biggest failure of all...
1) Keep copies of the Modification Report Form on hand (Under the Documents Section ) and fill one out for every mod you do.
2) Make SURE you have the customer SIGN it, explaining this is all experimental. this helps cut down on refunds dramatically!
3) Take that data every week (Sundays might be good) and fill out the G-Man Modification Report on the site.

Don't worry about having all the data. Just report what you have! For updates, like mileage reports months or years later, we'll handle that when it comes in.

You do this and you are helping everyone on this planet, most especially yourself and everyone else in Gadgetman Land!

So, KICK IN and get that data recorded! The world depends on you...

Hey guys!

We are about to do The Groove for the City of Missoula. Test vehicle is an 04 Ranger with a 4.0.

Any pointers for me?

How about a call?

Matt get a scan tool and watch O2 sensor(s)voltage, in real time as it runs engine warmed up. Take note if any O2's voltage hardly switches up/down, or if it switches slow.
