    Why does it seem most "diesel" guys pull nothing bigger than a couple lawnmowers...if anything at all? What I love most is the guy that works in an office that drives a 3/4 ton diesel truck as a commuter. Thats just awesome.

    Because I can get just under 14mpg towing 11,000lbs with a gross combined weight of about 20,000lbs and 19mpg on the highway running 75mph with a 8200lbs 4x4 crew cab truck.

    I really hate that, the only time it should smoke is on the track. Although I have been known to puff a tailgater occasionally.:D
