    Glad it worked on your truck. I worked directly with steinbauer for a month on a 2010 and 2017. Couldn’t get either to work reliably despite clean power and several remaps from them. It was a much better experience using Markus. Way more power and no codes. Remapped it while I had breakfast...

    Lance. Yes he is an awesome guy. Given the calls and messages I’ve gotten from other self builder and earth cruiser owners this is an area of interest. I do think sharing information helps all of us.

    first breakdown !!

    We have a 2010 fuso. Try a blue driver obd reader (we had similar challenges). Resetting the code only lasts a short while until you fix the issue. Blue driver can both read and It can reset codes. You can also see your fuel rail pressure on it along with many other things that won’t show up...

    we successfully tuned a 2017, 2013 and 2010 FG140. In call cases HP and Torque were improved. more so on the 2010 as it has a manual transmission. in all trucks we left the DPF system intact. The 2017 was correct on first remap, 2013 took some diagnosing and a few tries to get it right, the 2010...

    Idle fuel consumption of 4M50

    Heads up on idling a fuso, They clog up the DPF when they are idled a lot. You may find it’s very expensive vs a Honda generator :)

    Markus tuned the first truck today and it worked perfectly :). More power and torque is just what the truck needs. Markus is also very well versed on the Fuso transmissions and only adds the power and torque that the transmission can handle. The result is a manual transmission can handle more...

    I can't find anyone local. I have been talking to Markus from Schaknat, he seems like a great guy with a good solution. He can do remote ECU updates which appears to be the only way to go here in North America. I just wondered if anyone had used his services.

    Yes it’s very weird. 2010 threw 3 codes. After some tuning by steinbauer they got it down to one code and it takes an hour to throw it. But still won’t work reliably. 2017 threw 6 codes which got worse and worse eventually disabling engine totally. Thus looking for different solution

    Hi fellow fuso owners. I am trying to add more power and torque to our 2010 fuso. Assuming it works I have two friends with 2012 and 2017 fusos that would also like more. We started by trying steinbauer modules but after a couple of months working with them directly we still can’t seem to go...

    Hi Howard I got it from the fuso dealer.

    Diff Fluid FG649

    We used the correct lsd fluid from Mitsubishi. And it works well. Good to know that lsd additive will work as well

    Convert 2019/20 4x2 Fuso 140 FE (gas) to 4x4?

    We had a 2015 3500 sprinter with duallys. It was very good in snow. Drove it thru several brutal snow storms where the roads were littered with trucks. As I said it was surprisingly good. That being said both the fuso (in 2 wheel drive mode) and the sprinter could get stuck under specific...
