Drove over 700 miles, was surprised that I didn't have to fuel up more often than I did. With my '15, had to refuel just south of Tracy, CA, going up and again coming back, used more fuel with a smaller engine (5.3).

Installed my CB antenna and the rear stake hole plugs, not too long ago. Going to install/route the antenna cable some day soon. Would have loved to have had my CB on our road trip last weekend. I may take the mount bracket off, paint it black, and reinstall. Picture was taken in the San Ramon, CA area.

I was thinking about the same thing, whether the customer is with me or not, making Home Depot or Lowe's runs with/for them. Or even Sears, WalMart, etc, appliance pickup/delivery via Uber/Lyft.
I'm looking at doing the same to my daughter's Cruze and my wife's CR-V, and getting rid of their flimsy wire antennas. Theirs is also their AM/FM antenna. How's the reception with it? (If you want to wait a week or two before answering, that's fine) Where'd you get it?
Did a overnight, out/back, turn-around trip up to San Ramon (Bay Area) on Saturday afternoon and last night, for our neice's graduation from CSU East Bay. Saturday's drive up wasn't bad, other than needing to stop, and the on-ramp to get back on the highway being closed for construction. (I-5 NB @ SR-46) The next 30 miles ended up SUCKING!!!!! Went straight to our hotel, accidentally left my phone at the desk, went back to get it, GONE, activated "Find My iPhone" app, tracked it down to their dumpster, where the "customer," that was behind us in line, was "digging through." When we checked out, the day clerk said to make it reflect, so I DID!!! Sunday, the ceremony was supposed to be at 10AM, but Saturday night (VIA EMAIL) we were notified that it was postponed to 5PM. Most of the family that came up to see her graduate, had to leave by 6PM. We were looking at leaving around then, BUT decided to stay for her. Ended up leaving around 8:30PM, our initial/original ETA home was 1:30AM, ended up being 3:15AM, cause Siri wanted us to go a direction that we didn't see why, until we came to a STOP 3.5 miles from the next available detour. Come to find out, I-5 SB was CLOSED for a 10 mile stretch and everyone was being rerouted by CalTRANS. As we were getting to the off-ramp for the CalTRANS detour, they reopened I-5 SB. Going from Grapevine to Gorman was HELL, 2 Peterbilt trucks crawling up the mountain, with 2 luxury cars beside them, in the next two lanes, AND Mortimer slowly going past all of them in the passing lane. SO, I passed Mortimer on the left, moved in front of him, re-engaged my cruise, and was GONE!!!! Trip B started at 18.3MPG for the life of the truck, ended at 18.8, and now almost has 13K on it. My Fuelly was 17.3 AMPG, now 17.4 and I have to refuel tonight. Fuelly says that I had averaged 18.93 MPG on the way up/around Hayward, computer was showing that I was in the 20s. Computer is currently showing 21.7MPG since Hayward, even with idling on I-5 for almost a hour. I topped off after work on Friday ($3.999), on the way home again, in Hayward, CA ($4.399, when we started heading for home), and I'm refueling tonight after work (probably still $3.999). I estimate that it will be in the 19s according to Fuelly.

Not only temperature dependent, but also weight dependent. With no one in the seat, the heater(s) will not seem to heat the seat. As for "cooling," even on HOT days, I don't ever hear them running during remote start.
