I love the fact that with a truck everything can be thrown into the bed and you do not have to listen to it rattle and shift the whole time you are driving. As everyone has said, the 5.7 is thirsty and if it were not for my company's perks, I would not be happy about footing the fuel bill out of my own pocket. I usually get about 300 miles per tank towing my PS 197. No one has said this before, but when the low fuel light comes on, you have at LEAST 6 gallons in the tank. Even at conservative 12mpg, that is a lot left without filling up. I usually fill up 50 miles after the Low Fuel message comes up and I have never had less than a few gallons in the tank. Just food for thought.
Yeah, the tank is actually 26 gallons, but after initial fill-up, you won't be able to pump more than 22 gallons. Something to do with a built in reserve tank. There's a thread about it on tundrasolutions.com.
