OUCH Slanteye I didn't realize your chevy was a MAX. How bad is your mileage? I'm getting 20mpg out of my 2011 gmc with the 5.3 and 6 speed tranny.

I have an 02 F250 for towing, with the 7.3 diesel. 4 place enclosed Haulmark trailer, that is for sale or trade for an inline 2-3 place.

It isn't the Max. It has the 5.3. That is the only pic I could find with the 20s on it. When did you get the GMC? Pics?

I'm thinking about using a smart car. The plan is to fashion a ramp/deck out of cardboard that can be raised or lowered for loading. The snowmobile track will be exposed, and sled throttle connected to smart car throttle. This way if the car gets stuck, or if I just want to faster. I can lower the sled to get the best traction, and drive on.

Why are you posting in threads about snowmobiles? Shouldn't you be on some minivan forum and kissing wifey's ass?

The only snowmobile posts you make are to make fun of Bryan and I.

Yeah diesel gearing does suck. I know if I go over 70mph on the highway I might as well wave my wallet out the window because fueling is gonna drain it either way.

At 62-65mph I was able to get 15mpg towing my enclosed. At 65-70 (over 2k RPMs) I got 10mpg.

Now see I don't have the patients to drive 62-65mph, even if it is saving me money lol. I can run my gmc @ 90mph on the freeway and get 21mpg.

When did they put in the 6-speed tranny? 90mph and 21mpg? Ummmmm, I think you're hanging around Harry too much.
