    Well after my luv was wrecked by my brother it sat in the back yard for about 3 weeks. Then today i whent to buy KennyWs flat bed. Well i had been driving my F-150 lately thus i forgot the joys of the mini truck. I go down averaged 75mph (3500rpm) from Spokane to Benton (about 140miles). Then the flat bed gets loaded up ( the luv was right close to the bump stops /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif) and get on the highway and average 65mph(3200rpm) back to Spokane. Heres the kicker 24mpg and the whole trip was done in the secondaries of the carb(they kick in at 3000rpm). Oh thats a refreshing change from 10mpg on my ford /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif. Sorry i had to share my excitment to have my little truck back on the road and running well... /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif
