I just turned 140,000 on my F150, it got me to thinking about this:

140,000 miles / 11 MPG

This sucks - 12,727 gallons of fuel at roughly $2.25 per = $28,635.75.

It was a long drive with a broken radio and it is difficult to read CT on the iPhone while driving down the freeway.

Just turned the odo over for the 4th time not too long ago. 406,xxx miles on my 82 F-150. My truck only has a 5 digit odo so this is pieced together from the previous owners that I've tracked down. It's on it's 2nd 351W. Original transmission, transfercase, and axles. They don't build em like that anymore. Runs like a champ.

I've got 144K on my '99 Ram pickup, 11 mpg and for sale. Not a good truck, keeping it would be throwing good money after bad.

New (to me) '05 Chevy cube van has 53K, carries everything I need and even comes with a work bench :thumbup: 12 mpg you'd have to pry it from my cold fingers.
