To really take advantage of this system, simply enter orbit and turn it on. However, the rate of acceleration will be very low, so your terminal velocity is years away and I doubt you can go that long on a tank of gas.
But what if his truck runs on love?

Make love, not war man!

By the way I took the yellow covers off the lights and looks 10 fold better!
using premium gas is kinda a waste as our trucks come tuned from the factory for 87/89
