  1. Premium fuel recommended, doesn't sound like something you would hear for a fleet truck engine.
  2. I have always had truck caps. For this truck I went with a Retrax and it's perfect for my needs. Keeps things dry, but more flexibility than a cap. My truck is a garage queen and won't go out in the salt anyway, so can't comment on how they are with snow/ice.
  3. I suspect these gauges are rough approximations rather than finely calibrate instruments.
  4. This is typical of mine. About 40F and not towing. Goes up a smidge with the trailer.
  5. Filled up the DEF again today since I was at the truck stop. 812 miles and used 1.2 gallons, 677MPG. About 250 was towing the RV.
  6. Sounds like you are at the mercy of the government inflicted production delays. As the esteemed Dr Fauci has said, it's time for you to just shut up and do what you are told.
  7. Have they at least promised to install them when they come out of back order?
  8. Take the 2 lane roads for a while on the way home, more to see and far more interesting than the bland highways.
  9. Congrats on the order, exciting time! How long did they guess it will take?
  10. GM should offer the 10 spd but I suspect the bean counters will win out and keep the 6 spd.
  11. When I was comparing trucks, I was looking at a Ford 7.3 10 spd combo or the Chevy diesel I ended up with. The Ford was noticeably more powerful than the GM gas truck, it is always in the right gear. Yes, I got my engineering degree from the back of a matchbook, but GM absolutely should have the 10 speed behind the gas engine. It would solve all these complaints immediately. Guessing it's actually the bean counters that made that decision. Surely it's got to come along soon.
  12. Mine doesn't have a key, so it spins the starter when the computer thinks it's OK after you push the button. I think even with the key, it's all up to the computer anyway.
  13. I started keeping track of it on mine and now have one data point. Over the last 1664 miles it used 4.2 gallons for 397 MPG of DEF. The diesel MPG was 12.8 overall, most of that was towing the 9k RV. I just set up an alternate vehicle on fuelly and get the DEF at the truck lanes in the truck stops. My truck had some DEF system recall done back in June when it threw a code.
  14. On my computer, if you click on tools it takes you to build and price. Try this maybe? https://www.gmfamilyfirst.com/build-and-price/
  15. Not to build, but of course you need an account for the discount price.
