Diesel towing 28mpg...

Just had a kid telling me how his uncles Cummins gets 28mpg while pulling a 40' gooseneck with two trucks on it. Guess i made a mistake buying my new to me GMC... Sheeeesh. Why does everyone think they need to lie. Who cares?

Some folks have " lie-o-meters" installed in their tow vehicles and have a need to pass this information on to mush-brain relatives.

For some reason people like to "lie" about gas mileage, prices paid for something (especially if you own same exact thing) and time it takes to go somewhere. Not sure why that is, but it is.

Don't forget temperatures too...

For some people it's their nature... some like to embellish more than others too...

A while back I commented to a neighbour on how hot it was when I was in Las Vegas in August 2010... He retorted back that I didn't know what hot was because he was there when it was 128*

Ummmmmm............. Jimmy.... the record high temperature in Las Vegas is 117*

No rig....just saying 28mpg is absurd in a truck, towing, when a little economy car gets very little better!
