    The difference is Joe Schmo the consumer isn’t directly producing said emissions. It only happens behind the scenes where nobody can see, so all is well. :rolleyes:

    While you “eco-warriors” are hammering out a new world order some of us lowly company drivers were hauling freight and moving fast* (*disclaimer- fast is a relativistic term when in a co. truck).

    I left Wheat Ridge, Colorado this morning, up and over Vail Pass and took my 30 in Grand Junction, Colorado. Stopped and used my bottle to relieve an urgent pressure on my bladder near Richfield, Utah (3 minute stop) and then went hammer down to the Pilot in Saint George, Utah. I finished with 17 minutes left on my 11 and 2hr and 40min left on my 14. Total mileage 634.4 miles. In a truck that is speed limited to 66mph. My top speed with gravity assist was 72mph (company limit).

    This ain’t no @Cattleman84 number with ag assist and truck that probably goes 80mph in 8th... but still...I’m pretty happy with my performance.

    The OM spent 3 hours and 41 minutes, little over 200 miles today determined to find a spot to lay on me, beside me, or the steering column.

    It was a valiant effort.

    In the end she settled for the passenger seat.
     
    Opus, lovesthedrive, dwells40 and 4 others Thank this.

    I only run 68 to 70 most days, but even with my co truck limited to 75, I like to be able to step out and hammer down at times to get around someone when needed. I dont think I could work for a co that has their trucks limited to 65.
