Re: [RC] Advice on trucks..... - Jody Rogers-Buttram

I got you beat Angie.


1988 F350 flatbed truck.  Mileage should be around *180,000* thousand, all orginal miles BTW.  The odometer cable broke, neither fuel gauge works in either tank, the gear shift will fall off the steering column if you're not careful, it is a total B***** to crank. It gets 10 MPG going down hill, falls back to nothing going uphill, sometimes (because it eats starters) you have to crawl under and take a hammer to hit something up under there to start it.  BUT, it is paid for  !!!!   Oh, and no part of the radio works, but I do have air conditioning.

>>>BTW - my 06 Chevy Duramax gets 13.5 MPG hauling.
My 1994 GMC with 175,000 miles gets a little over 12 mpg hauling...but I'm starting to be more concerned with how many miles it gets to the quart of oil! :-P The air conditioning quit working so I paid $90 for Fri-on (sp?) & some stop leak, since it was leaking it apparently. I had GREAT air conditioning for maybe...12 hrs. Guess the leak is bigger than they thought. So...no air, burning oil, radiator's leaking, radio only works on maybe one channel...but it's paid for! :-)
