I stopped counting the number of times a day this occurs to me............from Prius owners (or the like) calling the office to complain about our trucks running.

I have lifted, 1-ton Diesel 4x4 service trucks that will set and run idle if only for a 15 minute stop to specifically save the glow plugs from (start/stop) burnout (costly to replace). They will idle on fumes, burn biodiesel fuel, "tuned", see 28-30 mpg (with 4-6 idle stops per day) .............and smell like McDonalds french fries

"Why do you have to have such a big truck?"..
"Why can't you save the planet from your exhaust?"
"Your prices must be high to pay your fuel bill?"


We saved over $2000.00 per truck this year in fuel cost, just changing over to diesel. And diesel is more expensive..

"Think of all the extra work that little Prius engine has to do to haul your lard ass around all day." It's a good thing Twinkies are no longer sold. I'd have said it.....I know I would.

When you are dead, you don't know that you are dead. It's difficult only for the others.

It's the same when you are stupid

I bought a 2011 F-250 with the 6.7L diesel this year. I traded my 2010 CTS (non CTS-V) for it. I hated the CTS...cramped driver's side and uncomfortable seats. This three ton truck gets better fuel mileage than the 3.8L V-6 in the CTS. I'm currently getting 19-20 mpg IN TOWN (city traffic). I love having a truck again, and in my opinion, diesel is the only way to go. BTW...400hp and 800 foot pounds of torque with no mods.

My personal/service truck weighs over 11,000 lbs has more hp and torque than my C5Z could possibly make with mods...........and it seems to go through tires alot quicker too ........and still get 22+ mpg city, lifted on air suspension, running on 35" tires and wheels rated at 4000lbs each.....for a reason.

We have a local Ford dealer on a strip of road that I travel daily. The salesmen have a tendancy to abuse their lot Mustangs going to and from lunch. Just last week, I pulled into their lot on a emergency service call and almost all of the salesmen stepped out to ask me "What do you have under that hood?"

I just smiled and said: "Well, it says GMC turbo diesel"
...........(all of the Banks controls are hidden in the interior center console. After all, ...it is a "service" truck.)

I've seen this video before. I can't stand the smell from the exhaust on my El Camino. It will choke you out. I would love to find this fat broad and give her both pipes at 3000 RPM's for about 2 minutes. That would close her blow hole.
