How can it be a Duramax??? the article clearly states it is a GM diesel engine, but GM doesnt make the Duramax, Isuzu does. Just wondering.

70 mpg at 400 rpm. That is, what, 8th gear?

...and I get reamed for saying I get 30 mpg at 55 mph.

It does seem low, but that's what they are saying. What is that, a 1.0 gear ratio?
