Subject: FTE 97up - V-10 Gas Mileage

Harry asks for gas mileage info on F-250/350 V-10.

My truck is an F-350, SRW, Crewcab, auto tranny, 3.73 limited slip w/V-10.
I've put five tanks of gas in it and total miles on truck was 1738 at the last
fill-up. Could not calculate mileage on the first tank since I didn't know
how much was in the tank when the dealer delivered it. Driving has all been
unloaded. City/highway driving has been a mix of about 50/50. I typically
drive at the speed limit, no more than two or three miles over the limit. MPG
has been as follows: 12.1 MPG, 12.4 MPG, 14.9 MPG, 14.2 MPG.

Hello Ford Truck Enthusiasts list members!

In late July, Ford Truck Enthusiasts offered email addresses to
list members for a low fee in order to ease the financial burden
FTE has on my family (loss of several thousand per year, which
could be better spent on a college fund for my two children).

We asked for a commitment from at least 20 people to buy email
addresses. Due to failure to pay for the service by nearly 40%
of the people who ordered it, the email service has increased
the financial impact on my family, rather than help it. FTE is
now obligated to our hosting company to pay for the email service.

If you would like to purchase an email address for 6 months or
1 year in the form of yourname ford-trucks.com, we would appreciate
it. You can use the address for any personal email, not just
list email. Not only will it help us, it also shows your Ford
truck pride to everyone you email.

FTE email addresses are compatible with just about every browser
and email package there is (for techies, it uses SMTP/POP3). You
can use it from most any internet provider.

The cost?
Personal Use
- Total of $20 for 6 months.
- Total of $30 for 12 months.
- Additional addresses are $14.50/6 months and $26.50/12 months.

(For those who remember the last email about this, I simply rolled
the setup costs into the payment).

Existing Ford truck clubs
- One address for free so long as it is used for club
purposes only and is not used in conjunction with mailing
lists (except ours). Using it for club announcements and
communications with club members is allowable if the volume
is kept to a reasonable amount.

Please email me at kpayne mindspring.com if you're interested.
Include 3 email addresses (in case your first choice is taken) and
a notice that you want 6 or 12 months. Additionally, send the
password you would like to use with the account. Addresses must
start with a letter and contain only letters, dashes or numbers.
Your account will be set up with 48 hours of receipt of your email.
You'll have 2 weeks days after your invoice is emailed to send

Please think about what FTE has offered you and remember that
although we stand by our promise to keep FTE's mailing lists free,
they aren't free for the Payne family.
