I was a wide head at one time, but I had it cut down for 30" rows.

She's a 1974 International Harvester 715 combine with a 6 cylinder 301 cubic inch gasoline engine. The three row head came from miller sellner implement in sleepy eye MN.

I can't blame you on the diesel. That's good with the hyper miling stuff. When you need tires, get the next size larger and reduce your speed by a fraction as you'll automatically be going faster from the larger tires; or recalibrate the odometer so that your speed will be accurate. If it's computer controlled, that's fairly easy if you have the right apps or have the OBD II reader/scanner, if it allows for that. If not, you'd need someone who has it on their computer or has another third party reader to reset it. With some adjustments to the truck's computer, you could get 33 mpg with those tires or more. Also try to get tires that are a bit more fuel efficient. Every little bit helps. Have you thought of methanol/water injection as some use that for up to a five to eight percent gain in fuel economy? What is the rear end axle ratio? Is it 4-wheel drive?

Good! Try your best to get the discounts on gas. If you've got a Kmart, Sears or Kroger around there, most likely you can get 30 cents a gallon or more off. I should be getting $1.50 a gallon off the price with my discount through Winn-Dixie, one of our regional grocers. Did you make mods to your truck to get the 31 mpg? I know folks getting upwards of that and up to 40 and 50 mpg with gas AND diesel trucks.

"We could eliminate lots of CO2, If all those who voted for Obama, would go and turn off all the electricity they use. (I'd even allow them to use electricity they produce with Wind/solar, etc.) Since that was over 50% of the US population, I figure we could cut our electric usage by half. Voting has consequences, and now we are reaping those. Not voting has consequences too. So vote this Nov." Not quite true. It was a little over 50% of those that voted and it wasn't the entire country that supports or supported or voted for him. But, for those that did, I hope they wind up homeless and poor like me! They deserve what they voted for 100%.
