    wasn't my fault. Last night was driving peacefully to the store. a guy in an expensive, what looked 5 series BMW (couldn't tell after he wrecked), he came into my lane. I was in his blind spot and since it was dark i was only focused on my lane i didn't notice he was coming in my lane. His rear side clipped my front side. as soon as i heard the bump i knew what was going on so I pulled brakes.
    He basically pitted himself and wrecked his car on the side of the road. It was definitely totaled. We exchanged stories on our new cars but he just bought his couple days ago. Everyone was fine.
    Good news is nothing happened to my truck. no dents, scratches, or damage. He pitted because my truck hogged the road. police report puts him at fault cause he couldn't see me with his tiny side mirrors and blamed BMW's design.lol.
    Anyway back to testing MPG.lol

    glad everyone is OK (and your truck too)

    Last I checked, every manufacturer must be at fault because every vehicle has a blind spot.

    Thanks i agree. my f-150 was a road hog and can crush my tacoma. I think what was his major mistake was that his angle was bad and he corrected the wrong way. he thought I was behind him the whole time!
