I haven't plugged my truck in in 2 years and the temps go to -35c without windchill here and I've never had a problem starting mine. And I'm only running my stock battery with 540 cca

yes....8mpg. But here's the thing. When I fill up it only goes to half a tank an when I go to take off it says full. It'll take 13 gallons. But the full gauge says half full. And I when I drive the first half tank doesn't last long at all. But I did about 80 mile of highway driving last night and it's at half a tank now so??? Something ain't right? I got about 40 miles a 1/4 of a tank last night. Anybody know what's going on?

for my drive from home to school its about 221 miles, and I only use 12 gallons to do it. So that comes out to be just over 18 mpg with the 4.0L SOHC motor

You live where it's warm though. No winter blend shit gas and you don't have to let your truck warm up

Keep 5 gallons in a gas container so you can fill it and go to a gas station
