Wow, that's a triple kilotank in metric!

And i think your poor dog was just exhausted from pulling the truck so much lately.

No. I know Dodge specifies the tranny fluid has to meet ATF +4 spec. I know there's been some chatter on CumminsForum and elsewhere as to whether it's actually better to use the MB-spec, because that's recommended by Mecedes in Europe for the same tranny (if I recall correctly). While it seems odd to me that Dodge recommends an auto tranny fluid in their manual, I decided to stick with something that meets the ATF +4 spec. I use Castrol Transmax ATF+4, as it had the best viscousity and wear characteristics of any ATF+4 fluid that has published specs.

I do miss the dog, but I gotta admit that's funny.

Surely many of us know, how easily an animal becomes part of the family, and how precious they are to us. I am sorry his time has come, rest in peace buddy.

Congratulations on your tank, and performance. Surely you will be able to crank it higher with the fire from this achievement. Excellent work, sir!

Maybe before too long. Ive been making some plans. Also I found a friend at work thats taken a particular intrest lately and, as luck would have it, his brother-in-law is a wooden boat builder. He's invited me over to talk about it some more but I haven't been able to make it over there yet. We'll see what happens...like usual I still have lots of planned mods in the works (some actually started,some but stewing in my brain). These include aero wheel covers, tranny heater, finishing the circulation coolant heater install, completing the belly pan, rear fender skirts, and various engine mods.

That is flat out amazing for a full sized pickup, how much pushing did you have to do to manage that?

My corolla gets upto 45-50mpg and it is tiny and has a tiny engine lol.
