like you said, I'm better off on gas now than with my 3.0. I loved the little torque monster, but it ate gas like hell.

I get pretty good mpgs, I'd say about 16 city and about 19 hwy. thats if I can ever manage not to drive it fast off every light lol. I was pretty proud of her the other day it chirped it in second on a new tar road i was on(felt so cool haha) And today I was going about 60 and put it to the floor to get around a guy and the road was kinda wet from earlier rain and I lost traction.

the bed took me literally 20 mins to take off, it was EASY. dropping the tank would have sucked since its full of fuel!
