    It's suppose to get .5 mpg to 1 mpg more than the standard engine. I just read about the International with the MaxxForce engine in RoadKing magazine, May/June 2008. It is suppose to be in the TransStars, and WorkStars, at some piont will be in the ProStar. Has anyone else read the artical? Does anyone know of or have experiance with this engine? The artical says they get .5 to 1 mpg more, among other good sounding things.

    Anyone know what outfits run this engine?

    Thanks

    If thats right, wow, thats alot better than the 5-6 mpg we hear about. What, that would be $4.50 to $9.00 a mile savings.

    What is Kinghunter?

    Lol i was being sarcastic, Kinghunter is the most knowledgable person on fuel milage who has yet to get his CDL..... Just bustin your chops KH.... Either way i dont know about believing all em brochures, everyone says fuel milage is great this or that. Fact is the new engines and ULSD with 80k lbs i doubt you will see 6mpg OTR.
