  1. Better MPG on 93?

    I'll guess one would need to see a 6 mpg increase with the higher octane to break about even. Engine displacement isn't a factor.
  2. Well it sure as hell matters to me. I have a 2018 too. Just trying to see what is in the future.
  3. Were the TCM and injector failures covered by the 3yr/36k or did they happen after the warranty expired?
  4. Concerned about towing....3/4 ton. Concerned about mileage....Duramax. DD...well if you have spent any real time in an unloaded 2500HD then you realize there is a difference in ride quality between it and the 1500. That stated, loaded up with the TT, gear, the family and headed for the mountains, the 2500 rides like a dream. Good luck.
  5. I agree. The combination is light years ahead of my 2003 and works like ditch lights on a locomotive. You see what you might hit. High beams not the greatest but i haven't had to dodge any owls yet.
  6. I'll second that last sentence.
  7. I carry a small floor jack in the bed. It's first mission is for my boat trailer but it also works well at freeing a wedged chainsaw. I would think it could be used on the truck also, if needed. Sent from my SM-G920P using Tapatalk
  8. Bed mat

    No pre-mix would rule me out, hence the Dee Zee. Sent from my SM-G920P using Tapatalk
  9. 700 miles to a tank

    Anything below 2000 RPM is where MPG nirvana lives in the Duramax. My best "actual measured" was 23.4 mpg. Where it really shines is during towing but then you may already know that. Enjoy.
  10. They do leak in the corners but nothing to write home about. Considering the December rainfall amounts we have had, it's really nothing to get concerned about. Sent from my SM-G920P using Tapatalk
  11. Tailgate locks so no. I really like being able to drop the tailgate without having to unlock the cover.
  12. Roll n Lock "A" model. Again, probably not what you want to spend. Sent from my SM-G920P using Tapatalk
  13. Bed mat

    Agreed. Great price for both form and function. I'm running the exact same setup.
  14. I realize this is the 2019 forum but I was curious so I pulled the cargo storage box out of my 2018 (with the all weather mats) and they were not cut. It appears the mats have a molded lip (like what you see in your pics) that the box sits in. I didn't see anything underneath the mats indicating they needed to be cut. Again, this is on a 2018 so yours may be different.
  15. I don't recall anything in the owners manual about "break in oil". A recommended break in procedure yes. I would think a trip to the Dealer is next.
