ok, go my avant back, i was so happy to sit in it and shift it again.

Decided to pull the motor real quick, took like 30 minuets.

650ftlbs of holding power...that was expensive, i wish i could have
taken it with me :wah:

i remember this...back in may of '06...brings back bad memories :mad:

v8 was a bit thirsty today...did not help i was doing 80 the whole way

I dont recommend towing a car without anything smaller than the v8. the
multiple hill starts wounded the clutch. as long as you keep that motor
at 3k you can tow anything. i booked it about 75-80 whole way down. i
did about 80 all the back, no joke 

16.6mpg down 
13.9mpg back 

v8 3800lbs 
avant 3300lbs?(no motor) 
dolly 600lbs 

even after all of the city driving, oil and water temp ever so slightly
increased then went back to normal soon as the highway came. Also put 10
gal of 89 with 10% ethanol. i swear the v8 runs better and much much
smoother now. i think it cleaned itself out, running it real hard.
