    I would agree as well but was pointing out that it was a stupid comment from that guy. They as a company have not tried to build the fleet out to have great MPG as some companies have done this. The ones that did this was planning on high fuel cost at some point in time. The ones that did not was not worried about it since fuel was 2-3 dollars a gallon. This is really my point and just used the (Morons) post to get the attention. Ha Ha

    Well I think when you are hauling freight out of the big money capital of El Paso it’s probably more likely they took the Kevin Rutherford master contractor class on how to move cheap freight. You have to know your numbers!

    Actually that happened. Well sort of. The guys in this video were the 3 top fuel mileage drivers at CR. England for 3 years in a row. The third year, the owner offered them a recording contract. Tell me that's not a genius idea for an incentive to produce good fuel mileage numbers. Dontay, the bands front man, did 13 mpg from Sacramento to Detroit. Loaded both ways.

    Guy I was in school with ( Smiley ). He was from Baltimore, and had never been anywhere.

    Was like 48 hours before our test with the state. This when everyone was still tested by a state man.

    He could not get that pre trip down to save his life.

    So I was like," Why don't you turn that into a rap?"

    The light bulb came on.

    your opinion.. the max mileage works for me...
    Fuel mileage with up a little.
    DEF use went down a little
    Truck idles quieter
    Less passive and active Regensburg
    360k with zero dpf problems or cleanings
     
    Siinman Thanks this.
