Well, we're in Vegas finally! Drove the strip a couple times. Usually fly in here but drivings a whole different experience! That interstate coming out of Barstow is an amazing long uphill grade!! 800-1100 on the pyro gets me about 65-75mph, 230-240 on the oil temps, 215-220 on the coolant. Soon as I let off she cools pretty quick. It's amazing how well the truck can really power up thou, I'm impressed. My fuel mileage is certainly not the best. I calculate about 11.3 mpg Imperial (cuz I'm Canadian eh lol) US gals about 9.40. (I think about 20% difference) Now I hope, better on the way home. I have been pushing it pretty hard..... and thats at about 100 degrees F. I don't think that's too bad.
