2012 Chevy 3500

This has a 6.6 liter Duramax V-8
MPG went up now that I'm not driving if you keep it under 70MPH - 11MPG not as bad.

All seems to be going well now, and i guess thats what happens when the tire goes at 75 mph.
The funny thing is we didn't hear or feel the blow-out.

It's nice having a brand new truck for towing, and it sounds like you're in the same range as other guys towing with the new model. Sucks to see you had tire issues, is that your snap-on cordless impact?

I don't blame you, those are some tough units and plenty of power. Used them at a heavy truck shop and for light duty roadside calls
