Default OMG!!!! (Just for you Mdub!)

Just did a calculation on how many miles I have gone on my V1 since I entered the Culture award in April 13th 2011.

I started with 138043.6 miles.

http://www.biofuelstechnologies.com/...ead.php?t=2282 (Post 12)

Today I have 155429.7 miles on her odometer(Truck NOT the Wife!) and thats 17,386.1 miles since April.

My calculation is that I drive 61 miles a day.

http://www.convertunits.com/dates/fr...o/Jan+23,+2012


Since I've been on the forum, I estimate I've ran 76,000 miles on oil at 61 miles per day. (I need to check if I can trace my Paypal to Jason to figure out the date I installed the system).

http://www.convertunits.com/dates/fr...o/Jan+23,+2012

My calculations based on 15 mpg and $3.50 average diesel cost per gallon is that I've saved roughly $17,000 on fuel since 8/2008!!!

I have gone through 2 Fass fuel pumps, and one pressure switch. I would consider this par for the course.

If this isn't enough to get you to buy a V3, I don't know what will!
Oh yeah, The support on this forum is second to none PERIOD!!!


I live on an Island, and I can just imagine what I would do in the lower 48!!

Thats awesome.
Using those same numbers for average MPG and average fuel cost, I have pocketed $28k in saving on my fuel with the 2003 dually ( I paid $29k for the truck).

Way to go...!

BTW I am LMAO that you use the term Lower 48...I thought it was just an Alaskan thing....but being your in the 50th state, I guess it does make sense.....

We also say that we are going "Outside" when we travel.....

I started using that term when I'm told "Free shipping applies to only the Lower 48."

South Point, Hawaii IS the most southern point of the 50 States! I've argued the point with sales reps., only to have them hang up on me. Of course I only do that when I have an optional business to order from.


BTW I would have thought you would say: " I'm going out to check the Freezer."

If there's someone who drives more than you other than a person making a living at it, I don't know who it is. You're one driving mother scratcher.

That's why I love my V1/V2 Clay!!!

Tell your friend not only did it pay for the system, it also paid for the entire cost of the truck, ($29,500) and I have change left over.

This is true.

The V1/V2 has given me little problems over the years. A couple pumps, one hose, and a recent check valve change out. Small price to pay.

And yes, Still on original injectors!
