Yes Dave the fellow finally contacted me back that has the truck and said he gets around 8 miles to the gallon ... I think there would be too much to have to do to that rig to get better mileage think i will pass on that one ...

Re: Fuel mileage question

Well decided against the good thinking because the fellow delivered the truck to my driveway 1100 miles from me .. After reviewing fuel receipts the truck averaged 13.4 miles per gallon ... Not very good but not as bad as i expected...
