    They would have to double your rate just to catch you up to where people where in 1980. Shhhh, we aren't suppose to talk about that. :biggrin_25511:


    All they want to here is, "Thank you Governor, My I have some more please." :biggrin_2556:

    One for the "I don't think that's supposed to happen" file - my truck just did a parked regen...on its own...while idling normally, not opti-idling.

    ***insert Twilight Zone theme here.....***

    I'm guessing because of the opt-idle that you have a newer truck. I'm hoping to hold on to my Cascadia as long as I can. 366k right now....

    '14 mid-roof Cascadia, it's a gutless wonder.

    Oh and the Opti-Idle doesn't work right, it won't go into thermostat mode, heat nor cool. Thankfully it's in the '50s here in Wilmer.

    Edit:// you've got about 85-90k left.
     
    48Packard Thanks this.

    At Crete, that's a load . I once pulled a load 41 miles from the shipper to the receiver.

    The opti-idle might be the death knell for me at Crete, unless they isolate my CPAP outlet like they have in my current truck. I have no reason to expect that they won't. But I'm not looking forward to having an OI truck. Had one back in the day and I hated it.

    You hated opti-idle? I hated being parked near one. Why did Crete give up on battery pack apu's?
