i know you couldent run a 53' tralier it would need to be 40' or maybe 35'.
but the thought of a full boat tale makes me wunder how much better it could get

i think 16 mpg in a big rig, is goal worth striving for

i know at first glance 16 seems like sissy mpg compared to 40 or 60
but its insanely better than 6 or 8 that many trucks get now

He now has a Caterpillar 6NZ ( 3406E / C15 single turbo / electronic / 14.6L ) that puts out almost 900hp, but in an unaerodynamic chassis ( Peterbilt 379 ) does 8-9 mpg loaded
can he take that truck in to CA with out getting a smog ticket(s)?
1 86 T\D trooper with rare GEN 3 rods TRANS FIXED NOW DD
1 86 4WD 5sp pup is 2.3L gas, but plan on 2.2L diesel repower
1 91 trop, long term plan is a group buy of imported Isuzu 4JB1-T 2.8L I-4 engines, hoping to get price down to 2K not 3K plus
1993 sidekick my MPG toy, epa rating 26.
i get 29/31 with stock drive train.
