*REMINDER!* – Please be sure to stay on the trail, and be sure the trail you’re on is actually shown on the current Motor Vehicle Use Map. If the trail you’re on isn’t on the MVUM, then it’s not a trail and you’re breaking the law. Unfortunately illegitimate trails are cut all the time and just because there is a dirt path through the woods doesn’t mean it is an official, legal trail. If you’re caught on one of these illegitimate trails you may face fines and it’ll be a check mark against OHVs in the area… so, please, resist the urge to explore that random trail heading off into the woods and do your part to keep public lands open to OHVs by staying on legal trails. . www.overlandtextile.com . #overlandtextileco #overland #overlanding #overlander #overlandcommunity #overlandfamily #offroad #offroading #wheelin #wheeling #camp #camping #explore #adventure #exploring #explorer #exploration #expedition #adventuremobile #usfs #ohv #mvum #breakinthelaw #keepitlegal #keepitpublic #followtherules #oklahoma #ouachitanationalforest #brokenbow #hochatown

On this episode Dan flies solo an interviews the team from Oregon Trail Offroad one last time before they depart on their big adventure.  Sorry about the huge delay between episodes.  Starting a new position and going into a big work trip pulled me away from the show for a bit.  But I’m back and ready to get back into some more regular show production.

Episode 114 – Fuel Economy

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

On this episode Dan, Craig, and Rich focus in on how to improve fuel economy.  While we admit that none of us buy offroad rigs for fuel economy, its good to know what will give you the most bang for your buck when trying to improve your own fuel economy in your rig.  Everything from cutting weight to improving aerodynamics will help.  Or if you’re in the market for a new rig, maybe we have just the right one for you.  What do you think of the new Ram ecodiesel?  We have an article that indicates you can eek out more than 31 MPG from the 1500 series truck!  Madness?!  Maybe not!
