2600 mile road trip... theoretically

Me and my buddy got to talking last night while drunk suprise suprise lol, well we got to thinking, if it was actually possible to drive from Ohio to Califronia without having to stop for fuel, we would drive my truck WOT the entire way there.

Do you think it would make it?

Do you have to actually be driving the truck or could you push it some or most of the way there?

95superstroke, He said WOT....I dont think you can push a truck at WOT.

Tyler, I think you could make it on 1/2 a tank....but you gotta be drunk when you do it. That is the only way to make this work.

Or you could just put a MASSIVE auxileryfuel tank in the bed....that way you could pump the fuel while your driving

Im drunk now, im packing my bags lol

What I mean is, if I could hold enough fuel, say 200 gallons in my bed or so. Could I motor and all last 2600 miles or so at WOT from here to there withouth stopping?

Why not? Cummins says 100% duty cycle at WOT, so why cant a PSD make it?
