Fuel saving tips

I see alot of people looking to save fuel while driving a full size truck. I have solved all your problems. To get an extra fifteen miles to the gallon drive a s-it box most of the time. Photo included of mine 1987 toyota Camry .

That's what I did two months after buying the Titan. Bought an '01 Suzuki SV650S. I average 55mpg! Plus here in sunny So Cal, it virtually eliminates any traffic concerns.

Ah yes the Gen 2 Camry. Some believe that is the best built Camry ever. I have a Gen 3 1993, and it is awesome. It's got 166K miles, and I doubt it'll ever die.............and I beat the sh!t out of it!

You might get 55MPG, but if some idiot makes a mistake with their big SUV you're basically roadkill.

That's why I bought the Titan in the first place. With all these huge lifted trucks and SUVs on the roads around here, I had to get something big just to feel safer when driving.

I do tip my hat off to you though. I wouldn't have the nerve to ride a motorcycle here in So. Cal traffic. It's brutal enough when driving the Titan.lol!

I know what you're saying. It takes a lot of concentration to ride safely in traffic. I've been commuting close to 20k a year for over 20 years. I just took a few years off due to my wife's concern. But after the gas skyrocketed I figured it was time to get back on a bike.

Yepper, the motorcycle is the way to go if you want the gas mileage and a fun ride to and from work. 40mpg on this one.
