Also two of my employes just bought an crew and ext cab duramax's and another is looking to get one. It will be like duramax heaven here.

Congratulations on your new purchase!! Just wanted to remind everyone who might be in the market for a new truck/suv to tow their rig this summer, I just got a fresh shipment of Duramax/Allision trucks in...2500HD's and 3500HD's. I also have
some Big Blocks too! So if you need a new Chevy give me a call @ 240-299-0995!!

i have a '02 GMC 2500HD 4x4 SLT Crew Cab short bed w/ the D/A combo. my first tank was 15mpg, with a little over 5,000 miles on the truck, i range anywhere from 17-19mpg daily driving. i haven't towed for long enough trips to get a good avg. i would guess it in the 14mpg range. the first thing i did was switch the 245's to 265's....the dealer suggested it and performed work. i love it so far.

my '01 GMC 2500HD 4x4 SLE X-cab short bed w/ the 6.0 only gets 13mpg daily driving and 9-10mpg towing. the 6.0 is more responsive in daily driving though. i may put it for sale late this summer in case anyone is interested.

BAD HTM SR 24,


Congrats on your new 2500HD Duramax/Allison Crew Cab. I sure wish GM still offered the 454 which was the old 7.4. I have had two of the 8.1's, my first in an 01 Suburban and now my second in my 02 Avalanche. I love the 8.1 for two reasons one it is the Duramax is not offered in either the Suburban or the Avalanche and two I can not see the $7K in additional cost to add it. In this part of the N.E. Diesel fuel is more expensive then other fuels which kind of negates the MPG savings. Only thing not too cool about the 01 8.1 in the Suburban was that it would use a qt of oil between oil changes 3K miles. Only have 12K miles on The 02 8.1 Avalanche so not sure if it will be the same. Enjoy the new truck.

The 7.4 is a 454.
The 8.1 is a 496.
An 8.2 is a 502.

BAD HTM SR 24, Congrats on the new truck !
You are worried about it only does 97 mph??
My new Ford only did 90 !

THats OK ........ I have the cure . Western diesel computer chip . It over rides your speed limiter and gives you another 65 hp and about 125 ftlbs torque and gains 1-3 mpg.

My Ford now pins the speedo on 100 and keeps pulling about another 15 seconds till you hit the governer !! I have to check the GPS to see actual speed next time . If you want any info e-mail me at [email protected] I offer great deals to OSO members . Good luck with it ! JOE

Hold on a second guys! BADHTMSR24 might have some interesting info on this bid for you all....I don't want to say anything as the info I heard is second hand, but something a little underhanded may have happened on that auction.
You DID notice there wasn't a minimum bid, right? Hmmm....perhaps someone made an error in that? I'll let BADHTM post up if he wants to. But don't anyone feel too bad about not bidding on that puppy just yet, that motor may just turn up somewhere again.

Cobra Marty, I assume the question re list was directed at my post about new Chevrolet trucks. EVERYTHING is discounted especially for my fellow OSO members.
