Now that summer is well behind, I have summer MPG to report. I burned 62.74 gallons driving 3145.1 miles, for 50.1 MPG. My driving was about 75% highway in 55 MPH limits, where I normally drive 57 MPH and average about 46 MPG. The short trip driving with average trip length 5 to 7 miles brought the mileage up.

This truck is very sensitive to temperature. The short trip mileage starts to drop when the temperature is below about 70 deg F. This truck would benefit from a block heater.

I finally have a trailer hitch. It's a $100 option, but that option was not available when I ordered this truck. So I bought a $17 hitch receiver tube and welded it on, then bought a wiring harness from etrailer.com for about $130. Its first use was to drag an old dock to the dump:
