    anyone have a hour meter on there truck??? i know some newer gmc and chevys have hour meters on odometer and was wondering what true miles = hours on truck.. in the real world of traffic and lights 60 miles does not equal 1 hour..
    from what i get on my gps i think its like 30 miles in a hour on a truck. but i would like to hear from people with true hour meters and hear hours and miles on trucks..

    52,800 miles. 2075 hrs. equals 25.4 miles per hour average. On the pick up. No idea what's on the dump I haven't been in it to check in months lol

    83,800 miles
    3,722 hours
    = 22.5 miles per hour

    What that tells... My truck has been driven on short trips, in town, most of it's life. A lot of ideling to warm up in the cold, a ton of stop and go traffic. Of course the truck is a 2000 model, and still looks and runs like NEW, but the engine has racked up some hours for sure.
