    I hate to think of what my boss was averaging on the bull rack I was pulling back in the day.

    Whoaaa
    Double check
    Fuel 7100$

    Still doesn't make that much better
    Yes
    Lots of idling at the ports

    Back to compnay driver
    Not in my interest for OO at the moment

    I'm glad I tested the waters first before buying the trailer and own authority.

    Much happier being a compnay driver for now
     
    Loose Leaf Thanks this.

    3.9mpg a little better.

    Now I'm wondering what all the other older trucks are averaging and how much better a new truck does?
