Big But Efficient

Howdy Y'all

I'm Big Dave. Just found this site but I've been squeezing MPG out of the most unlikely of vehicles - A Ford F-350 pickup truck. In the summer I get nearly 27 MPG from this monster.

I'm here to find out some more.

I'm guessing that this is a diesel. If not, then I'm even more impressed.
