Almost makes you sick to the stomach. Was only just under 1/4 tank left. If this keeps up the truck may just have to become a driveway ornament.:thud:

When will it end? I had topped off when I had just a pinch over 3/4 and it was 55.00! This has got to be insanity!!!!!

I feel for ya. I got a large after market tank and it is not uncommon for me to drop over two c notes for a fill up. Ill still be driving a smoke blowing monster even if fuel goes to 10 bucks a gallon. I will just have to cut some other things out of my budget like food and such. HAHA

Well when I'm getting 21.7 to 23.3 MPG it doesn't sting as bad... :w:

Here is how I do it...
Better MPG's

And 2 cycle oil doesn't hurt you fuel mileage at all! :hyper:

Hybrids are waste of time, energy and money.

If you live in a city, hybrids become logical. Unless your city has mass transit. Then you should drive the hybrid to a train station, or walk to a bus stop.

And the only thing you can tow in a hybrid is a flower pot

I've always loved how you can load a Cummins up and it doesn't sag but I see chevys with barely anything in the back that are sagging like crazy

HAHA!!! That's hilarious you bring it up, my friend who has an f-350 and I were standing around the back of my truck talking last night and he was commenting on how tall my dodge sits but he said that it will sag when I get my tool box and hitch installed like his ford did. Then he hopped on the bumper and started jumping. He got down with a puzzled look on his face and said, "Man that thing doesn't move much. I can get my truck to hop when I do that"

HAHAHA I love it.:rof

You don't have to go with a friggin hybrid to get better MPG. There's plenty of smaller cars that get great MPG. We took a trip this weenend and all cramned up in my buddies Ford Focus, that was cheap!

Hybrids have some benefits in the city and none on the highway (other than the inherent light weight and aerodynamics of hybrids, that have nothing to do with the hybrid design). I'd consider a cheap and small car as a far better alternative than a hybrid for almost anybody.

Unless you need a truck, of course...
