Wanna Feel Really Stupid About Your MPG?

Read this thread.

AirFlow BulletTruck Project - Fuel Economy, Hypermiling, EcoModding News and Forum - EcoModder.com

Fight all the way through it and you see this guy is getting 13+ MPG from a big rig in regular freight service. He's not driving 40 MPH like some Cummins guys who claim big MPG. This guy has schedules.

And to think some guys in the PSN are happy with 15-16 MPG.

After seeing this I'm not happy about 26+ MPG from a paltry 9,900 lb truck.

There is no way your truck weighs 9,900.

If you are a pro, beautiful is as beautiful does. His truck does beautifully.

How much money are looks worth?

BTW, my truck's factory GVWR was 9,900 lb. That is to which I refer. Curb weight is a ton and a half lighter.

Dang. I am going to try for another 5-ish mpg, with 25 being the goal, once it's running again and on the cheap.
