I get anywhere from 20-22 mpg highway, and about 18-20 in the city. Hauling I get about 15 mpg, but that's to be expected.

I lurve mine, too. Big, wide, white truck. Named her Velma.

Apparently, something must be magical with the 2008s. This is my second 2008 Triton V8, and it gets exactly the same gas mileage as my last one.

I totaled my last truck on 02/24/12, and found the exact same truck, with the same options, low mileage, and even the same year. Picked it up last week. Except for the fact that the interior upholstery is a darker grey, and the bedliner made by a different company than the other one, it's a twin of the one I lost.

What an attractive little truck. Love the name too! That's pretty cool that you could find almost the exact same truck as the one you wrecked.

Velma's almost 20 feet long, so not that little. She has an 8 foot bed.

Yep, I really enjoyed working with Enterprise Car Sales (division of Enterprise Rent a Car). They make vehicle buying so much less of a hassle, especially when you're in a time crunch. Told 'em what I wanted, and they found it for me.

I only had Bertha 8 months. Poor thing, she's gone on to the Big Junkyard in the sky.

I know the feeling. I had to get rid of my powerstroke. He was such a lovely boy -_-
Bernie

I considered crying when the new owner came to pick him up at the rock bottom price of 12k
