Wanted to take the time to say.....

Well, being that I bought a $350 dollar Ford Ranger to drive back and forth to work. I haven't been driving the ol' 6.7 too often while we are on mandatory twelves. Well, the ol' lady's birthday was Thursday, and took her out to dinner Saturday night, decided to drive the 6.7 and just wanted to take the time to say, that its awesome and running good.

Cruised around romped on it a bit and heard the rear tires begging for mercy. I have to say I miss driving it everyday but wanna save it from the winter salt and miles.

With all the threads about them self destructing.. just wanted to say mines running awesome and I LOVE IT.

That is a story almost identical to mine except I'm retiring and moving and I'm going to drive my 92 Ranger and slow down driving the 250. Right now the fuel is fairly cheap, especially at Wally's where there is a gas-war of sorts until Dec 24 at 2400. Then everything goes back up. Oh, you have to charge your fuel with a Wally Card. I installed a 50 gal Transfer Fuel tank last month and keep it topped off, since I have a 8' bed I have 86 gallons of Saudi oil in my tanks and proud of it. That gives me almost 1400 miles based on my 16.1 mpg I'm getting right now. I can get to my retiredville and back on one tank with some left over.

Might be blasphemy on a Ford forum, but my dad and I both drive old Saturn SL2's to save the miles on our trucks. They're super cheap and if you can change your oil, you can rebuild the engine in em'.

But I agree, it's nice to hop in the F250 after a long week at work and driving a buzzy 4 cylinder, to feel some real power.

I know this is a 6.7 forum and I got a 6.0, but just gonna chime in and say I've got a 93 mitsubishi mighty max I drive to save fuel and miles, my wife calls it the "rat". a lot cheaper to maintain than the 250.

$350 is cheaper than the bicycle I ride to work every day. And yes, it is nice to get in the truck at the end of the week and give it a little hell.
