No cause when I filled it up it read a 1/2 tank and I put excatly 10 gals in so it is accurate-ish.

Mine has the 18 gallon tank from the factory. Never been modded as far as I can tell, and when I fill up, it goes about 1/4 tank past full. 1/2 tank mark is like 1/4 tank. It's all screwy haha.

So happy to see you driving it around!

Cheers

I'm art artist not a mathematician, but I'm pretty sure the math don't add up there. I'll just wait till my dump truck guy fixes his truck. When is deer season? I'll come out then.

Bow or rifle?? I prefer rifle season since I got a bad rotator cuff, but I do own a bow. Bow starts end of August and Rifle starts halloween till thanksgiving. I love our long hunting seasons most states back east its only like what two weeks tops?
