660 is from my place, right past the ECS, to Mechaniccsville. Load up, to the ECS, unload. Then back home.

whoops, meant $1 per MILE
Wishful thinking?

I have officaly owned that darn bravada for a year and i refuse to give up on it, we have engine number 3 sitting in front of it waiting for install.  After all of the trouble caused by  the previous engine install I have kind of been keeping myself busy with other things and dread doing it.  But as a plus there is serious talk about getting it up and going for another trip to utah  ;D

the bravada will live on!

Bill you are more persistent than I am.  I believe if the Bravada were mine I would have lit it on fire and roasted some marshmallows after the engine from Iowa blew.

Wow $1 a mile? So you're getting around 4 mpg? I couldn't make it on that. Too bad I couldn't squeeze them in a reefer trailer or I'd help :( Hopefully you guys will find a way to get them.

4.5 inthe cold months, it gets a little better now that weather is better and I don't idle at night.
auto transporters are notorious for bad milege, most average 4.5 to 5 mpg. I have gotten it up to 5.5, but I can't stand to run 55.  Now if I had to pay for the fuel out of MY pocket, it would be a different story.

Yeah I knew you guys got worse fuel mileage but didn't realize it was that much worse. I hate going slow but I'm paying the fuel so I do 55 most of the time and can get 9mpg but thats in a new cascadia too.
