Oh man. That horse likes to eat. Let me guess - 12 mpg in the summer, 8 in the winter? That's about what our F350 dumper gets with the plow on, a ton of rock in the back, and the hubs locked in.<quoted text>
I drive a '98 Chevy Silverado 3/4 ton 4 x 4 with a 7.4 liter engine. I pray for snow so I can go out and play in it. But I cry real tears at the pump. Working on it is cool because you can get your entire body under the hood.
Oddly for a truck that big, it only has a 17 gal tank, so it doesn't >feel< as bad at the pump, you just gotta do it more.
