The A3 is a diesel only engine instead of the multi-fuel right?

I believe thats correct....cat engine in newer one. I think there are some other changes, but not sure. I have been trying to do some research ever since this thread started.

I would only be interested in a multi-fuel truck. Feeding that beast with anything other than free used oil would be unbelievably expensive.

Sounds like some guys get 10mpg, and others can get up to 15mpg with these beasts. I would expect to be around 10.

10mpg using mostly free fuel is more than acceptable.

How awesome would it be to own a vehicle that lets you dump all of the liquid byproducts of an oil change into the fuel tank?

I like the idea of being able to possibly put my tractor in the bed of one of those bad boys.

7.3x let me drive his last year.....it did not end well.






They do great offroad, but when they get stuck they're STUCK. In all fairness, the stuck was my fault because I was pussyfooting it....Someone else's vehicle and people in the bed had me being a little too careful.

See last pic. Cummins on 37s+SuperDuty on 35s+liberal use of throttle. I tried for a while with just the Cummins but the tires were pretty worn and just didn't have enough weight. Finally double pulled with both trucks and eventually got it. We were yanking hard enough that when both straps tightened I'm pretty sure my truck was coming off the ground.....definitely the worst abuse that thing ever saw

Holy shit. I thought the Cummins and the SuperDuty were stock tow rigs. Compared to that deuce they look like it

The more research I do on this...

The more I realize that the above mentioned 1968 bobbed deuce may be a bit over priced...

Just admit it, you suck at drinking stick i found it a blast driving 7.3x's deuce but air or hydro assist steering is a must in my opinion.
