howdy truckies and tv junkies...
hey how about an informal "mileage vs engine hours" poll?
my truck is used almost exclusively for towing...
and an occasional run to 'town' while camping.
on the current 5k trip i topped 50,000 miles and now rest just at just over 52k.
with just over 49k while trailer in tow!
on many/most of the new diesels there is also an "engine hours" meter.
it might be interesting (for the number crunchers) to compare mileage 2 engine hours.
most modern cars have a 'trip computer' and for urban/highway mixed driving the average mph is typically 20-30 mph between tanks.
on the ford psd i've got 1250 engine hours at 52,000 miles
for an average of 41.6 mph
considering stopngo, idle while hooking up/parking, warm ups/cool downs, occasional urban zones, curves and other slow rolling...
that seems like a really high average mph 2 me...
so to get to the point, finally,
POST YOUR MILEAGE VERSUS ENGINE HOURS and average mph HERE!
this is likely to be a mostly 'diesel thing' since they have the engine hour counter,
i'd like to read what others have for comparison, but no guessing.
thanks for playing...
and there will be an expensive one of a kind gift for the winner!
52k miles/1250 engine hours=41.6 mph
