Re: 2008 Chevy Express 3500
Yeah, regarding the van....it seems all the big gasses get real great mileage.....when they are up for sale! Not knocking the 6.0 Chevy tho cause I have that in my camper van and in my 4WD truck.
As far as Scotty and his mpg, he may have a truck like mine.....it's an 03 K-2500 HD short bed ex-cab with the 6.0 gasser, and it maaaaay hit as hi as 15 hwy empty, being driven gently.
But ya see, many of these heavier trucks have NO overdrive gear, so they do get less mpg on the hwy. The thing is, they are made to do hard work and haul sh*t, so you'd just screw up their trannies driving in OD. I know since I fried my 89 k-2500's tranny driving under load too much in OD.
Props for this Chevy camper van advertised here tho....that longer wheelbase makes them much smoother riders on the jointed cement freeways in Cali.....no butt end hopping up and down violently like with the Ford extended WB vans.
And, FWIW, these Chevy vans have the engine pushed out in front a bit farther than the Dodge, so they give the passenger more leg room. Other than the mileage, this looks like a pretty nice rig.
