    Too short of a sample to be a valuable estimation of what you truck really can do. At least if it had been on the way there and way back it would have been a better sample.

    2. The E is nice and all, but the extra $50 is worth it to see 4 things instead of two.

    They have a package deal for that, but that's alot of coin to drop on a scan tool. But that would sure be nice to have!

    Great MPG.

    On flat ground ... in South Georgia ... doing 55 to 60 ... on a cool day ... driving like an egg on the gas pedal ... I have gotten some super mileage on several vehicles.

    Thanks .... basically that type of driving today .... relatively flat (middlepeninsula and the tidewater region) ... not exceeding 60 mph .... keeping it under 2000 rpms.

    South Georgia? I opened King's Bay in Camden County in 1978 ... many miles ago.
