  1. 30 years from now you won't need a plumber. Your car will drive you to the next public washroom. so long j-ten-ner
  2. Well, have you been to Canada lately? Some users on here can't even merge onto a highway with less than 500hp under the hood. Jokes aside, it's on us in which direction this is all going. We as consumers have quite some power. It's called "money". "Every time you spend money, you're casting a vote for the kind of world you want." Anna Lappe And then there is that other thing, called "democracy"... so long j-ten-ner
  3. I think that I could live with an electric powered truck. But this ^^^ scares the shit out of me. Please stop writing such horror stories. so long j-ten-ner
  4. @ Donstar You're welcome! lol so long j-ten-ner
  5. I'd suggest that you read the post from Donstar three times in a row without blinking. It may help you to understand the question. so long j-ten-ner
  6. It says: "...DFM operated with fewer than eight active cylinders...a 9% improvement over the...model with AFM..." Could also be running on 7 cylinders. Not only four. so long j-ten-ner
  7. Out of another thread: " ...The folks at Chevy conducted a survey before designing the new 2019 Silverado. A majority of interested buyers, 60%, said that towing was one of their top priorities in a new truck. ..." And the outcome of the survey made Chevy to put more (although useful) electronic in the truck? That's it? so long j-ten-ner
  8. Do you mean the "real people, not actors" ? so long j-ten-ner
  9. That's not quite true. I use my truck for pleasure, getting groceries, towing my boat, towing work trailers, hauling tools and equipment. And I'm not the only one. For me it's an all around vehicle and I care about fuel economy. I realize that a truck can't compete with a four banger Civic in means of fuel efficiency, but I'm happy that my truck gets good mileage. so long j-ten-ner
  10. If it's not for EPA or similar institutions, then it'll be because of other things why GM would keep going with more technology for better fuel economy. The price of oil is one example. Even if the government eliminates all the taxes for gas, we're still in the mercy of the oil industry and the traders. Nobody knows when the oil supply will be tight (if at all, according to some Russian scientists ;) ). When that happens, GM will go belly up if they don't keep going inventing new fuel efficient technology. My bet is that it will not change the direction of the auto industry. so long j-ten-ner
  11. From my owners manual: "Checking Engine Oil It is a good idea to check the engine oil level at each fuel fill. In order to get an accurate reading, the vehicle must be on level ground. ..." Given the rake my truck has from factory, I'd have to park on a slope to have the bed rail level. Is your truck leveled? so long j-ten-ner
  12. Features I never touch

    I never touched traction and stability control. No need for the feature and also no need to disable it. If that makes sense. so long j-ten-ner
  13. I can feel your pain. But, I'm 5'10" and my truck is stock height. I still have trouble to reach the dip stick or fill oil w/o leaning against the grill or fender. A 2" level kit on my truck would give me a hard time to reach at all. When they scratch your truck when it's stock, I'd agree with you. Because GM designed it this way and it's up to the dealership to deal with it. But a leveled or lifted truck with a bull bar mounted...how is the mechanic supposed to work on it? Off of a ladder and leaning over the bar? I think that WorkSafeBC (or similar) has a say in that matter, too. so long j-ten-ner
  14. What am I buying with that engine? A few seconds from 0-60? Or will a F-150 drive faster at 70 mph as my truck at 70 mph? so long j-ten-ner
  15. 4cyl Silverado?

    Amen. so long j-ten-ner
