One ton, new engine not broken in, I think it's going to be . . . oh . . . say 16.2 mpg.

Sludgy, when you have the time, drain the front and rear differential fluids (only do the front after you've driven it in 4wd a bit) and replace with synthetic. There's a lot of metal floating around in there from the gears breaking in and you won't believe what comes out, particularly the rear.

Also replace the tranny filter if you haven't already.

I'm counting on Sludgy's skill and the skinny tires.

29.8 picoacres.

(That works out pretty close to 19.5mpg)

Answers and hints:

The truck bed cover is made from 1/4" luaun plywood; it's flat, not tapered or boxed.

The closest guess is the winner, whether high or low.

The rear wheels are single.

I plan on adjusting the odometer mileage for tire diameter, as published in the Tire Rack tables.

I'm at ~320 miles thus far on this tank. Weather has been mostly good so far, except it sucked today on about 100 miles of the return trip from Holyoke, rainy with strong headwinds. I tucked in behind semis most of the way, but this weather has to have hurt mpg.

I'm making a 100 mile round trip to Haverhill tomorrow in better weather, after which I'll gas up at the same station.

However, I'm using the wife's car to go to NY this weekend, and may not have time to post the results and select the winner until Monday.

This isn't gambling, since YOU didn't bet any money. It's a contest, and you can pick a number!

The conflict is profiting at the expense of another, (for me, at least)

To me, Sludgy is giving a prize to the winner. I didn't pay to enter or anything like that. He is just being a swell guy and having fun with his new truck.

But, you gotta go with your conscience. I have rules that I put on myself when it comes to drinking that wouldn't make sense to many people, but they are what my conscience requires.

Who drinks anyway, not me,

I'll go back in for 18.1 with the proceeds going to darfur if I win.
