    Yeah pretty much all the drivers at the terminal I worked at hated the Internationals. It was all I drove when I worked for them so it was all I knew, and they had inverters and TV mounts, so I didn't complain lol.

    You just cleared the biggest hurdle.
    You are willing to learn new tricks.
    It will take some time till you know all the tricks and get a feel for how best to work the auto.
    But once you do ...............it is nice to drive.

    ps software is important.
    I had to remove the tanker/liquids software on my truck before it shifted like i wanted.
    But that was my engine with my auto which were not Volvo made.


    I would say footcontrol is the most important in driving a auto with tankers.
     
    Echo5kilo and Dave1837 Thank this.

    According to a guy that I work with, use the manual mode and shift it that way. We pull tankers and he said it was not bad at all.

    Actually I asked a friend with whom worked with me there, what they were running back then. Terry Johnson was using Borg Warners not Weiand and the intakes were ceramic coated. I don't know where I got Weiand from.
    He said that they flashed all their own ECM's on all the E'models and 6NZ's and they ran top notch.
