Heck, the internal combustion engine 'as we know it' is long overdue for a change,,,

The OPOC engine is pretty interesting,,, The HP to weight ratio and it's efficiency is most impressive! (turbo 2 stroke with a sump for lubrication.)

teewin is on a distinguished road

You will see better mileage too, when your truck hits the engine break in point, some where around 5,000 miles
My average mileage is 15.8 highway, but, my truck also weighs more than most, at 6300 pounds

How true is this? I've just got my Ram, right @ 1600 miles on the Odom. I mean, it doesn't really matter that much right? We all bought a truck for a GOOD REASON, right? I love mine, fully loaded and fast, even with a bassboat between the exhaust! I just can't stand the "park assist" beeping. The rear camera is great,20" rims, nav simple, u-connect allows all the yapping without the used of your hands, Dodge sold me on all those creature comforts. Gas mileage? we'll get over it! Here in Louisiana, the heat, the flooded roads, etc etc, this truck will deliver! Enjoy your truck fellas!
