I use a Smart fortwo to do the quotations and general driving..
Smart: 60mpg
Canter: 25mpg
Hilux x 2: 35mpg each
Nissan Primastar: 38mpg
Vauxhall Movano: 35mpg
All are diesel except Smart

Looking at the posts, you guys need smaller trucks, that is trucks with smaller engines.

your gallons are bigger. convert that to MPG us and it won't be as much of a difference. also, we don't get small fuel efficient engines in our trucks.
