I am glad I am not driving a semi-trailer...

Pulled into a truck stop today among a bunch of semi-trailers and stopped by a pump. The previous customer had put in $728.36 worth of diesel (170 + gallons)

as low as freight is right now and as high as fuel prices are right now, it is difficult for a small trucking business to stay above water. ask me how I know..
5-8 mpg's

I am surprised it was under $1k ... It costs around $100 to fill up my truck.

Snipe
is your f250 a 7.3 or 6.0??

I try not to let my 26 gallon tank get too low. But I am always impressed at the mpg's it knocks down being a 7000lb truck

It is a 6.0 and has somewhere around a 30 gallon tank which is why fillups routinely get around $100

I hear you man. It certainly does sting. But I fill up about twice a month so it is really not bad for all the capabilities of a 3/4 ton truck
have you "bulletproofed" the 6.0??
03 6.0's with a straight pipe sound sooo good

Mine is stone stock unless you want to consider running boards and a bed liner as modifications. Up until a few weeks ago it was my primary driver and was filling it up twice a week. I need some spare time to replace shocks on it and get the tires installed, until then I just use it on the weekends these days to keep the batteries at least charged up. Guy down the street from me has a different downpipe and some other exhaust work on his, the turbo on it sounds like a 747 driving down the road, cool to hear occasionally but I bet would drive most people nuts for everyday use.

Yeah they are quite loud. a straight piped dmax (mine) is about as loud as a 6.0 with a muffler lol. I get an awesome rumble and turbo whistle. Not loud in the cab at all though. Girlfriend didn't notice i changed anything until she heard it idling outside
