The gas difference is significant!

Reading on other boards about 4.8 getting around 11mpg. My 3.0 delivered 3 days ago is getting around 16 right now and I expect it to get better.

This is such bs. I've been to the factory in S.C and

it certainly seemed to be run and manned by folks with pride in their work. I think some of us are a bit too quick to bad mouth anything built in the US. Shame on you.

Cool Faulty fuel pump?

Read on one of these forums about a guy with a new X5 that had a failed fuel pump right after delivery and took awhile to get spare. This the possible cause of the hold?
