    I know a guy who's sister's ex-boyfriend used to work for a guy who ate lunch with his wife where the waiter's father-in-law's next door neighbor used to run for a company that used Volvos to haul heavy loads up hill both ways -- who claims he gets 17.3 mpg, easy.

    I'd call that pretty good.

    ViVa VoLvO! :biggrin_25525:

    I always preferred to run east to west --
    'cause I heard on the CB that that made me get younger.
    Didn't work.
    Headin' back east aged me an additional 70 hours in eight daze. :biggrin_25525: :biggrin_25523:

    Who made the engine with the bucket under it?
    :biggrin_2551:
    It doesn't ?!
    What DOES it mean?
    Are those your only qualifications?
    What does he call you? :biggrin_25525: :biggrin_25523:

    I don't believe you.Looks like you spend all your time at truckers forums to let to know everyone how skilled you are despite your age and how stupid and unskilled other truckers except you.Don't act like a clown,just relax and be polite with seniors.:biggrin_25522:
