When you're mad that its gonna be s****** this weekend when you were going to go pull parts

When you're even angrier that you got such a pathetic pay cheque that jeep doesn't even make it into the semimonthly budget period.... Neither does booze or entertainment. I'm gonna be at home bored out of my skull for the next three weeks until my vacation I hope I will be able to save enough for. Road trips at 12.7 mpg get expensive fast

It's true. I get 18 most of the time (doing 60) in the 5.9. I've seen 21.8 once (58 mph, slight tailwind, mild hills, 330 miles). My best is 22.5 over 60 miles (at 60 mph). Taller gearing would help it out a good bit, I think.
