Does he tow his boat back and forth to work or what?
I have the V-10 in mine, the worst of the choices for gas mileage, and it gets around 12-15 on the highway, 10-11 around town. What the hell is he doing to get 6.5??

You guys are cracking me up! It's like watching a dog chase its tail for hours at a time.

steet- It's true the resale on the big gas engine vehicles is in the crapper- for ALL the mfg's. Too bad your buddy didn't opt for a PSD Excursion- I get nearly 20 mpg with mine. I wouldn't trade it for anything else- and I used to draw a paycheck from GM, and own stock in the company. (I do still have my '88 Suburban, but it is a different animal than the new ones)
The Excursion was the #1 target of the tree huggers from its debut because it is the biggest SUV on the market- it received a lot of bad pres from the Sierra Club and the like.

And your gas is $1.75 a gallon? That really sucks...... gas is 1.35 here, and diesel is the same, and it is going down.

I've driven both, Suburban and Excursion. The burb has been around for a long time and will be around for years to come. The Excursion was just a passing fad, it's good for towing, but in reality, if you're serious about towing, a dually is the way to go. And I think GM has the edge on comfort and quiet, which is why you would buy one of these vehicles over a truck anyway.

I zoomed out all the way and this is all I could get in the picture, yet your grocery-getter and the boat can fit in your pic.
