Default 4.3 Mpg ?

Iv been playing with antique Detroit 8V71 in my Ken worth . Well after some tweaking its pulling like a plow horse but the last two days iv been transporting Consumer power tandem bucket trucks .

Today i topped off at a truck stop in Pinconning ( 28 cents a gallon chaeper then walmart in west branch ) To see im getting a whooping 4.3 MPG , gee wonder why im picky about price

West Branch BP 2.89 Walmart 2.79 Now tell me they aint making money when 30 miles away at a truck stop of all places i find diesel for 2.51 a gallon .

Well, yeah, they are making money..isn't that the idea of being in business??

The issue is that your exit from I-75 is where tourists traveling up north stop for gas and to stretch their legs. Supply and Demand. The 'market' of tourists will pay it.

Remind me to bring you a 5 gallon can of diesel fuel next time we are in town.
