I have to say this new truck even though its pretty much the same components is great. I think they changed the computer a little but it sure is a pleasure to drive. The new trailer sitting lower has its draw backs but makes it a much better towing trailer also.

How'd the new fuel tank install go and how far are you making it between refills?

I still fill up everyday. I can't skip a spot like when I had 86 gallons but it sure is nice not having to worry about the fuel kicking back on my foot due to the vent tube always screwing up. With this tank they give you a sheet that shows how many gallons you have left at like 3/4 tank 1/2 tank and so on. 1/2 tank is not 1/2 tank they say it's 32 gallons. Well in my mind that should mean I have a 64 gallon tank but it's only 61 gallons. :-B I figure I only have 56 usable gallons. Due to the fact they like to leave a 10% room for fumes?

So when you fill it and it pops off your done don't add anymore.
