    actually, gallons burned/consumed do...I think.

    Before I left the truck selling (Commercial...medium duty through class 8), some of the larger trucks were starting to monitor gallons of fuel consumed as a more reliable indicator for certain maintenence/replacement items. Hours idling are different than hours at cruise/higher RPM, therefore, the amount of fuel consumed was thought to be better.

    That is where I'm saying you are incorrect, I do not bash RTV's I point out that they have some weaknesses as well. I don't recall calling the RTV junk or saying it was worthless. I think the RTV is a good machine, I just think to be fair to all it's sharing the goods but also the bads. If more people had posted about the RTV's weaknesses I may not have been so quick to purchase one. It served me well until the ground conditions got worse so it wasn't a total loss, I used it to plow a lot of snow the same as I use my Gator for now. I'm not a basher just not a biased opinion, I've used multiple brands and for my current uses the Gator 825i fits my needs perfectly.....when it doesn't my next machine could be a different brand altogether I'll try to find as much info on everything available and go from there to make my decision.

    I like the gallons used idea, that would be great for maintenance reminders....especially with today's fuel.
