    1995 379 Pete

    12.7 Deeeeeetroit.

    13 speed, baby.

    3.55 rears.

    24.5 LP.

    Fleet Air Filters, free flow exhaust.

    My lifetime - 6.5 MPG, flatbed.


    Fuel cost is 15% of revenue to the truck, all miles accounted.

    You’re welcome.

    Any truck will do 9 mpg if it's limited to 50 mph.
