Well, we're not getting 50k per McDonalds, either. We're all doing it wrong. You're the winner, obviously. You've won lawnsite. Congrats.

I've had my 6.0 vortec for nearly 2 years now and have put over 25000 miles on it since I purchased it (its up to about 77000 miles). Its a strong engine and very reliable. I've done regular oil changes and things have been going very smoothly with this truck.

I think he was saying that he gets terrible mileage? I took it as "wow you guys are getting miles per gallon? I am measuring by gallons per mile" like as a joke maybe? Not sure though
