LMAO a slight type o. It should be I drive 65 mph 95% of the time. Need to proof read a bit better I guess.
Yah, makes you wonder if they ever shut the truck off to check the oil or anything else under the hood. If it's still running then everything must be hunky dorrie......RIGHT?????Racer X 69 said:I saw something the other day that made me laugh. An "owner operator" for one of the mega fleets pulled into the fuel island next to me, and not only left the truck running for the entire time they were fueling and while they were in the c-store for 20 minutes or so, but set it on high idle.
And the truck had those airtab things all over it. Chrome plated air tabs.
Guess they saved so much fuel with those things that they can afford the fuel for 45 minutes of fast idle time.
Gotta get me some of them things.
Terry, Here's a spreadsheet showing ...what else.... cost savings at various miles per gallon. I did NOT use Starbucks value indicators because I didn't know if you were buying just coffee/black or Carmel Machiato's.Actually, running at higher speeds increases your chances for accidents more so than being on the road longer. I really don't care what anyone else does with their money, but I can use an extra $10,000.00 per year. It has paid for a truck, trailer, tires and many cups of Starbuck's Coffee!
