I decided since hubby and I were out and about shopping all day, to take a peek at my average fuel economy gauge after resetting it.

And when I seen it...I almost shit myself lol

Here it is,the highest ever! And after shopping all day, driving through small towns...this is what we got. And it hasn't budged. We drove about 70 miles today.

And...that's with my lead foot :eek: And no, we weren't driving/coasting down a hill either lol

I want to see some video evidence of this jig... :biggrin: Let us know what the hand calculated MPGs are at the end of that tank full. :yes: What were you calculating before? :undecided:

We ran it down to about a 1/4 tank today and filled it up. We calculated before at around 14-15, when it said 13.2 MPG

So it's either up a bit from this, or down a bit. We still need to calculate it after this tank though.

It sure does beat a hand calculated 9 MPG!!

I predicted friskiness. :yes: I see no evidence of said friskiness yet. :wink: I'm getting on a plane to come home from Korea in 8 hours :biggrin: and I was hoping for a little jig-dancing video to relieve the boredom. :frown:

Would me making a thread asking what kind of lift I should get and what off road tires I should get that will fit 20's? :biggrin:

To kill 2 birds with one stone, please video tape the beat down, then keep the camera rolling while you do your jig. Then everybody will be happy (except Mike)

I won't post a jig dancing video until Thursday when we do a hand calculation of the actual MPG's we're getting. BUT if it's above 14 MPG's I SWEAR you will get your jig dancing video with me doing the jig lol

Tomorrow we will be going to look at a few TB's, so hopefully Phantom doesn't think we will be replacing him(we're not) but I'm trying to convince hubby that the SRT-8 is just way out of our league lol.....and that the Honda accord ricer won't be going in the new garage next to my baby either :biggrin:

although, if the SS is priced right(we're looking tomorrow) I may be able to jig my way into another truck. We'll see...

Well...It's Thursday and as promised we hand calculated our MPG's. We're getting 15.22MPG. The DIC is only 1.1MPG off as hubby said it was set at 14.1 when he turned the truck off at the gas station.

Normal? God I hope so....what's abnormal is the fact that now, I have to video tape myself doing an actual jig :redface:

I promised if the MPG's were over 14, I'd make a video.

So, stay tuned...This is TO BE CONTINUED as my jig photo will be placed here.

For now, I need a nap. I had a sick baby up till 4:30am and I'm exhausted!

lol, at least you can say you better mileage than my SWB TB. Then again I am sure the space shuttle is getting better mileage than me right now, over 800lbs of boxes in the back. Moving begins tomorrow :wootwoot:

Congrats on your new found wealth by the way.

You know you don't have to lie to make friends. We completely understand that you are waiting for something better to come up like the drunk purchase of a grader so everyone will forget about the video of you doing a jig. :raspberry:

My video will be EPIC! I have an outgoing personality, so doing a jig on video and posting it on here is NOTHING compared to some of the stuff I do on a daily basis lol

I have no shame!!

Grats on getting the truck running right and the mpg up where it should be and out of the pits. After battling that for a while it's gotta be a great feeling :biggrin:

It's an amazing feeling! We worked hard on this truck since the day we brought it home. The feeling of accomplishment is amazing, and this is another reason why I will definitely post a video of me gettin jiggy with it lmao

Yeah we did, but most of it could have been avoided 2 ways.

1. The owners could have taken care of it
2. I didn't have to buy it lol

As far as it lasting....it's a GMC dude...should know better :biggrin:

:wootwoot: That was AWESOME.

just set a calendar reminder to bump this post just before Christmas time. By that time the current members could use a little holiday cheer and the noobs will need to see the REAL Voymom in action, so they know who they are dealing with.
