The family business is picking up the right tool for the job finally. We own an office furniture business and just purchased a 24x8' enclosed trailer. Always being a Toyota family we purchased two Toyota Tundras with 5.7L's. They will pull the trailer, power is definitely not an issue but it's screaming at 3500-4500rpm and burning gas like CRAZY. We literally have to stop at every gas station when we are on the highway. So, my Dad is in the process of getting a 2011 Chevy 3500 Dually. I'm sure it's overkill, but he has always wanted a dually for some reason. My Dad loves cars but his daily's have always been leased so he never really cared too much for them. I keep trying to tell him that he's going to need to change his habits if he's going to daily a diesel. So tell me, what do I need to tell him? How long to warm it up in the summer and winter? Do you need to cool it down? Any fuel additives, especially in the winter so the fuel doesn't gel?
Throw me all the info you can! Thanks!
