Hence the reason I love my 20 year old Powerstroke F350...

350 hp, 700 lb/ft, and I still get 15 city 19 highway (Personal best was southbound on I-5 through Cali, just over 21 mpg)

Oh, and with my upgraded rear tank I have almost 60 gallon fuel capacity.

My wife would kill me if I spent that much money on a truck... I only paid $5k for my '95 F350 with 165k miles on it.

Hopefully the profit will cover the cost of a knee surgery from trying to make those bastards start.
