I use mine as a work bench and general catchall. The damn thing still only gets 10 mpg turned off.

My crewcab PSD Ford is basking in the warm South Florida weather while I am in the cold working to pay for it. No need for it up north. Daily driver when in Florida.

1996 Silverado, stays in the garage year round and when I do use it, it is for towing. And just like the other duallies, gets 10mpg standing still.

General commuter and family vehicle. It won't get to tow the boat (no trailer) but will get to tow the Corvette once every year or so.

I have two..
The Chevy is my personal truck.... MUCH nicer all the way around than the Ford.
Stock D Max LLY (for now). Get's about 16mpgs empty. 14 pulling 8500lb.

The Ford is the work supplied. Small block 5.4. Worthless as a tow engine.. Get's 12 mpg empty. got 6.1 mpg yesterday pulling 8500lb over a 500 mile trip.! And, this is Florida. No hills. Constant pull, but no hills.
Good brakes on the Ford though. Thats all it has going for it. (turd)
