Varn the tdi's are nice to drive, i can literally barely feel my jet ski behind when towing,including accelerating from a stop. My previous vehicle a 3L v6 Ford Ranger Struggled towing the same set up, Nutz.
Too bad they don't make a pick-up.
Powerlifter, Good points you made.
Wow, twin Turbo's on the F350, That is pretty damn sweet.
I dream of adding a second k03 to my beetle..
I notice people throwing big turbo's on their cars without much concern for spool up times,seems like most are interested in max hp gain.
Andy i bet if you shifted at 1500rpm you would see even a higher mpg. Just shift quicker, I rarely skip gears, if on a decline i will.
Save gas
Ride a Mtn bike for errands exercise entertainment and outright fun
