MPG update...

My dad's first tank wasn't too good. 13.6 mpg, but this was having the truck set at the dealer, putting the bed on and alot of short trips. This second tank is 12.9 right now with some short trips and one 200 mile haul. I will keep you guys posted in the future on the mpg. Once again this is a 6 spd with 3.73 gears.

I really hope it gets better in the near future.

Go Greyhound, and leave your luggage with us. *maybe not intentionally*

Hand calculated is the only true measure of the MPG. Those overheads deals are sometimes close and most of the time not.
