    Something to make you laugh, but it what gets the job done here.

    One on my UK Ford Transit Tippers, rest are Ford Ranger Pickups.
    4 Cyl 2.5 Litre Diesel non turbo, 28MPG
    3.5 ton Tipper with Del 1/2 ton tail lift for ride on mowers etc
    Cab is 3 seater
    Body is 15ft Long x 7 ft wide x 3 ft high approx

    As Diesel is $6 per US Gallon here I am experimenting with a 30% mix of Vegetable Oil at 1/2 the price, no loss of power or MPG and the engine runs smoother. If we used recycled oil from resturants it would be free.

    Have a good 2006 Season all
