92,000 miles on an '01 f350 7.3 PSD 4X4 crew cab. Expect to put 300,000 miles on it. I utilize Caterpillar oil sampling to provide a window inside my engine, sampling all wear metals every 3,500 mile oil change. It has zero oil consumption. Its use is for towing exclusively, either pulling a gooseneck horse trailer or our Airstream. It is kept inside a warm, dry garage unless it is on the road. People who are not familiar with model years think it is brand new, it certainly looks that way. Overall towing fuel consumption is 14.6 mpg. It is a real pleasure to tow with!

Does not compute!!??

The only movement my AS has seen in the last 3 years is a couple of times each summer I move it ahead about 50' to mow under it.
When I do I use this tractor.
But tractors are measured in hours not miles.
It's a 1968 Ford 3000 and has about 2200 hours on it.

Hi, my 2000 Lincoln Navigator only has 41,000 miles on it. Still waiting for my retirement next year so we can really put it to use. I sure hope my new retirement home comes with a beautiful tractor like Ultradog has.

My 2005 Tacoma has 27,000 miles on it. Only about 3,000 towing something. Keep the oil changed religiously.

Just for S&G's I converted the hours to miles for you:
99000
It's been a while since I was involved with duration testing, I think I got it right...

A not uncommon problem with them. Buy a spare, and a spare belt. If it goes away in the middle of nowhere, you'll be happy you have them.

132,000 miles on my 2000 GMC Sierra. I would still be driving her, but some color blind guy ran a red light. I now have a new 2007 GMC Sierra.
