Very interesting read Jon. If I were shopping for a truck it would be a lot of good info. I can't believe that it has been a year, I would have thought six months. I know that your loads will vary all over the map, but what do you think your average gross would be? When I had my dump truck most hauling was one way of course but probably ten percent was both ways. I had a 5900i International with c15 cat putting out 475 HP. I got a pretty constant 6.5 mpg usually grossing around 74,000, which I think was pretty good for the time hauling so heavy. I was always trying to get as good mileage as possible, and one thing I did a lot was make use of hills to pick up momentum. Not to get going fast but to wait until the downhill to get back up to top speed. It seemed to help some. Do you do that?
