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!
