    My weekly trip to town is 65 miles a at 16mpg, and the daily work here adds another 30 or so a week.
    Chev did make a hyprid 2500 but the construction fleet sales it was aimed at co-incided with the construction industry collapse- they discontinued it after a couple years of no sales. 2003, if I remember.
    Short term thinking.
    Tesla with its new capital could make a bare bones work truck that would sell for less that an F250, if it was stripped of all so called "features".

    I buy and sell well trained riding mules and American Mammoth Jack Stock.

      The savings are much greater in a 15 MPG truck than on a 30 MPG car.

        sounds weird but now possible... if i had more... i still might do it? but tinker with augmenting the various fuel/drive systems in my 'ol f150... lots of room!

        we are on the verge of doing some great things... but the club doesn't want us to play... maybe.. you have a choice but it is often limited..

        you want gps with that?

        nope, i like to get lost...
