    I found that if i drive my 6 speed at or a little over the speed limit with the cruise control set i get fantastic mileage. Imagine that, and if i shift at or below 3500 rpm good mileage. Wow. So i have this shit hot truck and the fucking oil crunch is making me drive like a damn pansy.....
    Boooo

    Would that be "at or below the speed limit" based on your speedo or your actual speed? Because if it's based on your speedo, of course you're getting good mileage cause you're driving even slower than you would if you really were doing the speed limit.:D I used to get great gas mileage driving 61 mph on the freeway. Now I know better and really drive 65 (speedo 69) which does reduce gas mileage a lot.
