HOLY CRAP THIS THING IS HEAVY!!

Went to the scrap yard for work today to deliver some scrap wire. Drove up on the scale and the guy said holy crap that thing is heavy! The truck is 9120 lbs with me driving, I'm 250 lbs so it's 8870 lbs by itself.Wow I knew these trucks were heavy but damn.

Around half tank I believe, and my tool box (probably 150-200 lbs there) so it's still around 8700.

It's ridiculous that these things weigh that much and are as fast as they are!

9 MPG, oooooh

My 460 gets 8 EMPTY I don't complain about mileage any more, or even fuel prices. I just stop at the station when the little light comes on, fuel up and look at the empty spot in my wallet where all of my money used to be On another note, my V10 F550 gets 10mpg and weighs about 19k with a full load

I average around 13 as long as I drive like I have some sense, I get between 15-17 on the HWY set cruise at 75, all calculated not by the lom.
