    I usually run 90 to 100 miles. We are one of the last to get the new equipment though. Maybe in 10 yrs. I wonder what kind of power it has. I got stuck with an old 800 today with an uphill speed of about 20 mph, other than that, it was decent(for an 800). They are a beast all unto themselves.

    There are a bunch of them going to CO and MN right now. KY just got a bunch as well. Have not heard details on reliability or mileage yet.

    I get 21 extra miles just running off 5 or 10 stops from the route next to me. If this company wants to save money on fuel, start with the center dispatch supe.

    Quoted for truth. I got a split last week that was 14 stops and added 35 miles. I had to drive through at least two other routes to get to this area.

    They look and drive the same a a normal package car. Other than the decals they look the same.

    They are close to the same except the new ones have an engine shut off function for stop lights. Weird to get used to as the engine shuts down and starts by itself at intersections. same chassis, same body. same POS engine
