Good luck with that Jeff. My trip computer is always off by 1 - 2 mpg on the + side. My Duramax has 180K miles and my rig is around 18K loaded, and I am lucky to get 8 mpg loaded and only 15 mpg empty. I would be thrilled to get 10-12. I am due for a new one, since it is my every day driver for work. Maybe a 2013 will do better.
We are now ready to start our way down the Great Unknown.We are three quarters of a mile in the depth of the earth.We have an unknown distance yet to run, an unknow river yet to explore.What falls there are, we know not; what rocks beset the channel, we know not; what walls rise over the river, we know not. Ah, well! We may conjecture many things. The men talk as cheerfully as ever; jests are bandied about freely this morning; but to me the cheer is somber and the jests are ghastly. Powell 1869
