My dump truck is a c65 chevy. It has the 366 industrial engine,being a 79 model ithink it is safe the gasser has definitly stood the test of time. Milage is horrible at 6 empty and 4 loaded. However it can legally carry 3 to4 times what a 350 or 450 sized truck can. Repairs are very inexpensive compared to a diesel. The price to purchase it was also well below the purchase price of a diesel. These trucks arent for everyone buut thisone consistantly has made me money and has long ago paid for itself. The secret to a gas engine working in a truck this size is in the gearing. 10 is better than4 or 5. I dont understand the smaller dump trucks diesel or gas.
