Went strawberry picking last year with the family,two puiruses there.I get out of the X,and here mumbling.As I walk away I here one of the hybrid geeks ask me "How can you drive such a gas guzzling monstrousity,in these times with good men are dieing to supply YOUR fuel"? I slowly turn around and the wife gives me the "don't kick this guys ASS look",so I slowly approach said geek.I began "This truck runs on waste vegetable oil,I average 130 MPG on diesel,and I have several close friends serving in Iraq.I then explained that there are more then one type of hybrid,and I needed more power and space then a smaller one would provide."I then showed him the V3 and tank,and he quickly apoligized for being rude.He said he would look at diesels in a different light,and try not to be so narrow minded.All the time my wife was laughing her ass off:chuckles:.So next time he sees a big truck in the rear view,I hope I changed his train of thought................

Greasy, that's about what I was expecting to hear if someone was to say anything to me. I'm sure they view us as careless, inconsiderate folks just based on the types of vehicles we drive.
