Description: Bought her factory new. V10.

* Since there are no published EPA figures for my truck, I am using the average MPG registered on my factory instrumentation from BEFORE I started to experiment with moderate hypermiling techniques. *
Build Thread:
Current Mods: Lighten up my right foot. Concentrating on my instant MPG readout, and easing up on the pedal as much as possible, combined with removing tool boxes from sides recently, has gotten me from 8.8MPG to 9.3MPG.

7/5/10: Got her up to 9.8MPG just with better driving habits. Bought the Prius on 7/4 so now she is parked except for hauling chores.

Planned Mods: Add a 2010 Prius to my fleet, and a bicycle, and park the Dodge except as needed. She can't be beat when I need to move a ton of something (anything).

7/5/10 Bought the Prius yesterday, looking forward to racking up some sweet MPG's!
