    Cool Picked up a new 2015 Duramax for work

    With our old 2006 Duramax with over 194K miles on it having left me on I-75 once last summer and this summer, then not starting last Friday she was traded.

    It was the longest that we have ever kept a work or personal vehicle. One month shy of 9 years.

    Not the best picture do to the rain, I'll get a better on Friday when I tow the Mondo to Norris.





    I hope to have a relaxing tow since the kids are staying home no need for the Suburban.

    Nice Rig. I love my diesel but hate my monthly payment on it.

    I know this is one of the few that has a payment book on it. Wanted to wait till the other had 200K miles on it, but could not be trusted.

    I always think of diesels as longer-lasting than the gasoline counterparts. Is that generally true? I have two GMs with 210k miles that are still running great.

    I bought another even though I did not break 200k, I have known since about 70k miles in 2007 that an electronic issue would show up sometime. I was driving when it was struck by lighting, the put about $18k in parts and labor in it at that time.

    I've crossed 200k on our dmax.

    I think the diesel longevity holds true but the gas counterparts have come a long ways from 10-15 years ago.

    Great looking truck!

    Here she is hooked to the Mondo.

    I averaged 12.1 mpg to and from Norris Lake this weekend.
