The extra low end torque is incredible when you need it....

You'll need a whole lot more of them than that if you expect to get your truck up off the ground...

I’ve hauled sail boat fuel before with my Cummins. But that is heavier than what you got. So you still win.

Should had gotten even better fuel mileage. I don’t know why I never thought Of that. Fill a huge bag up with helium before road trips, make the truck lighter, much better mpg

Just tell em you’re driving the latest diesel/gas hybrid. Your gas supply is in the balloons. 100 mpg, and watch their eyes!

Although helium weighs twice as much hydrogen, because each gas is so much lighter than air helium provides about 93% of hydrogen's lift at full purity. In practical operation it is impossible to achieve or maintain 100% purity of either gas, reducing helium's lifting ability to about 88% of the lift of hydrogen.

So, if they are filled with helium you are over weight.......................

So...that’s how you get rid of the “squats” when towing.

Who knew!

Gotta be cheaper than airbags!

I hauled fundraiser popcorn for a band twice, bed cap, rear seat, and right front seat. I made sure i could still use the right mirror though.

If you have a 1,000 pound capacity truck and you need to haul 2,000 pounds of canaries...... Can you keep half of them flying the whole time and solve the problem........??
