    2. what mpg do you get city/highway pulling and not pulling?
    3. how much do you spend each week?

    I drive a 98 Dodge 1500 4x4. I spend about 140 per week in gas. I drive approx 550 kilometers a week.. Don't know exactly how it converts into mpg. About half city, and half highway

    1. I drive an '05 F-250 power stroke
    2. It gets about 10 mpg pulling the 18' trailer around town.
    3. It takes about $150 to fill it up and about $100 to fill up the equipment. I do this every 5-6 days.

    What's ironic is I'm a full-time firefighter and do this on my off days. :dizzy:

    1993 Nissan Pickup
    26 mpg without the loaded trailer
    19 mpg with the trailer

    No idea how much it costs to fill everything up twice a week. Ugh.

    $150/week just for the truck
    It varies each week on how much 2 cycle I use and how much the mowers need
