    Some people tell the truth about mpg-Others spout off crazy stuff and expect people to believe it.When I read about 1 tons getting 23mpg,they go on my ignore list.By the way, my f350 gets 7 pullin trailer.

    Oh, and if anyone is like me and didn't notice it the first time, it is customizable. The numbers didn't seem right at first, then I realized you can customize the price of gas, total miles driven each year, and the percentages of city and highway driving.

    Once I changed those figures, I got much more accurate (and depressing) numbers.:cry:

    Depressing is the right word...may I add disgusting as well.

    Now that we can finally catch our breath a little, I ran some expense numbers for the year and the truck fuel costs gave me a major headache. Next years contracts will clearly include a fuel adjustment surcharge clause. If big bad UPS can add them like they did this year, little ol me can sure as heck can....and will
