I make up for it with my other two cars. They are hybrids. LOL
A nitro buggy probably spits out more greenhouse gas than my truck will. (I'm only joking, so don't all y'all get all booty hurt over that comment.)
I'm only using it for towing. It might get driven once or twice a month. But in the end, I don't really give a $***. (Again, I'm only joking. If I really didn't care, I wouldn't own two hybrids)

By the way, my hybrids consist of a Hybrid Escape and a Hybrid Fusion. Therefore, I get to keep my "Man Card." They are not Priuses'.

I got a tube of Lucas marine grease. It should help add corrosion protection to my bearings when running wet. It snowed a bit in Texas a few days ago, and I thought to myself: hmm ... how fun would it be to play my RC in the snow. Will be time consuming to pack all the bearings with this grease, so I hope it works out good.

i see an excuse to buy a new set of bearings. fresh set for when it warms up and a set to leave marine grease in for winter time.

I got it for $10,000. I really wanted a v10 because I don't really plan to drive it much. I'm just going to use it to pull my toy hauler around. However, at $10k, I couldn't pass it up. In this condition and with these miles on it, around here they normally sell at an average of $20,000. No joke! I got it from a friends neighbor. The check engine light is on because of a glow plug error and the steering box is a little lose and this is why the cheap price. Well, the glow plug is fine so I erased the trouble light. The steering box can be tightened, so that will take about 45 minutes.

I'm taking it down, maybe next month, to upgrade the oil cooler and the egr coolers. Therefore, I won't have any issues with the motor. These 6.0 engines are known for these things going out then blowing the engine.

last month I drove to Utah, Wyoming, and Colorado. I was finding gas out there for $1.97 a gallon. I'm in California and even $3.14 would be very much appreciated to find out here.
