Just payed $76.00 to fill the truck up, at $2.75/gallon.
Man this is going to be an expensive dune season. Good thing the wife works.

lincster,
i also a couple days ago let my diesel fill up, and the pump clicked off at exactly $75.00 !!!!!
I was bummed. i thought the same thing about an expensive dune season. ToyHaulers have our trucks to fill up, the 40 gallon tank for the generator and the fueltank pump, and then the quads/bikes/buggies/jeeps. And i know a few guys here are running race fuel. So fuel to a toyhauler is at least a couple bucks. OUCH !

'course with you sporting that new TowBoss and LE39, i suspect you will be getting plenty of sand on your 12 tires the season, irregardless of how you have to do it

Just for grins, get this.

I put in 61 and change in diesel and 68.50 in unleaded for the generator. Now whats wrong with this picture.

The good part is that I've got enough lawn tractor gas to last me the rest of the year.

Thats why I'm ridding the HOG to work everyday. Keep the dodge cool and quiet.
Hey, ON the Moab trip.. we going to do a wagon train up there?
Just a thought although I still don't do hills that great.

We were actually looking at that tonight with some other friends...YEAP! Sounds like the best way to do it! The highway deal is up the 15 to the 70, over to Green River Road, then south a tad. If we can stay on the interstate, we can save some bucks. If we draft off each other, I think we can save about $300 between all of us (maybe more!). Of course, we'll have to take turns!

Sounds Great..
We towed out to Kansas this last March. We were into the 30+ mph wind most of the time. Did ok except the one day, no head winds,, going down hill,, and the dodge snaps the main tranny shaft. Lots of power,, but was going no where.
I guess I will always have that in the back of my mind.
I asked Dodge about the shaft in a 1Ton duelly and they just laughed.. its the same shaft. God I would love to put a Allison Tranny in my dodge. The best of both worlds..
Later Bro

Yikes Del!

PLEASE keep that disease in the Dodge family, OK?! Got too many other things to worry about with a 6-o! (That darn TDS has me spooked...).

Have a goot one!!

Make sure you all take a lot of pictures of that. It will be something to see. I'm feeling lonely! I gotta drive by myself.

Hey Big...
I refueled again today (Went to Bakersfield, Apple Valley then Home)except I stopped a the Pilot at the top of the Cahone (no I can't spell and you can't make me) pass. Just off the 15 on the 395. I paid only 3.03..... Fill up where the Big Rigs fill up and you save 5 per gallon.
