I filled up in MD or VA where gas was 30-40 cents cheaper than PA. I had a 50mpg 5speed commuter car that I loaned to my mom for reasons. She lives in Baltimore City and uses public trans for the past 7 years.
Use to but now but the next few years while I'm in Texas till I moved back to PA, I only live 3 miles from work and 7 miles from the airport where back in PA I lived 60-100 miles away from work/ airport. I gave my commuter car to my mom to take care of my sister after her miscarriage and never reclaimed my car and all of a sudden got transferred to Texas. I just kept driving my truck daily and never looked back. Highly inconvenient in the DC area for parking. Been a great truck and no issues aside from a leaking headlight cover replaced under warranty.
Thank you. 2.5 hours to clean the 1650 mile grime off. My next task for the truck is paint sealing and replace the drop in bed liner with a spray in. Hard to believe it's got 40k (33 were mine) miles on it already in the 14 months of owning it. Hope to keep it nice for many years to come.
Babying my 6.0l on strictly highway, I regularly fill up at the 500 mile marker with some miles left. My last fill up was 17.3mpg 90% highway, best was 18.2 out west. Avg combine is 15.5ish. Still satisfied here.
It's about half and half here in South Central PA. Everyone have been with the plow prep package. I was super lucky to find mine with the Bose, Z71, Blue, and plow prep in the 6.0 gas. It took me almost 3 weeks to find it and I almost ordered it.
It still was tested and validated through partnership with Allison according to GM so maybe give it a few years and all the bugs will be worked out. I mean look at Ford's new torqueshift-G recall and this is the first couple years of it. Time will tell but we do seem to be harsh critiques of something that isn't even set to be in the consumer market for at least another 6 months.
Looks are secondary to performance and to me it's performance that matters. The current 15-19s to me are pretty. The wheels and the side step on the bed of the 20 is growing on me but it will take awhile before I upgrade my 17.

The 6.0 may be a dinosaur and a dinosaur is in the reptile family. Some reptile species are known to outlive humans therefore making the title of the thread highly accurate when referencing the 6.0 to a dinosaur. I do believe someone on this forum has their 6.0l, 6l90 combo up to 500,000 miles without major repairs.
I was mindlessly researching over the holiday weekend and came across scan cable tuning. I don't forsee myself doing this till the warranty expires but would it hurt my gas mileage? Can I expect the advertised gains? I'm not complaining as I am happy with the truck but moreso curious.
I just got back from a trip first from PA to TN loaded trailer of my roommates X's crap, 5x10 dump style trailer with unknown weight, got 13.2 MPG going there, dropped trailer off in TN and traveled to Missouri from TN for Thanksgiving unloaded and got 17.2 after calculating by hand being generous on the throttle and no traffic being generally flat, on the way back to TN from Missouri, I got a tick over 17 exactly same conditions. Picking up the trailer and traveling from TN back to PA, I got 13.9. these are better numbers than my old 99obs 1500 4x4 350. Bottom line they like fuel LOL but I'm satisfied.
