let me tell you a short story and you'll decide against the 6
several of our local contractors...electricians, HVAC guys, carpenters, have
full-size Chevy and Dodge vans with the v-6's
they bought them for 'better mileage.....but with any load atall, it's
pedal-to-the-metal most all the time
they actuall get worse mileage than they would with a 350 or 360
