Wow, that's incredible for a 4wd.  My 2wd ram barely gets 17 on the interstate.  My wifes 4x4 5.3/6l80e tahoe might get 19.  I'm starting to think about a new truck and this will be very tempting to buy a newer direct injection GM.

 

2 previous days to work(behind 100 oaks) from White House it was 22 and 23 mpg depending on which way I was going up the ridge or down. I also drive like an old man 70 with cruise on.

Last week I had to work in Houston. While there I had a 2WD Suburban rental car. 5.3L. I got a call and had to drive to New Orleans. I filled up before I left Houston I did some city driving there before hitting highway. Got to NOLA and did mostly city driving. The dash gauge said i'd averaged like 25.6mpg. I filled and math'd it out to 24.3MPG. in a freakin Suburban. Chevy got the MPG game ON LOCK.

My company "car" is a 15' Silverado LT 4wd with the V6. I thought getting 22mpg was good. I also thought it had plenty of power. It doesn't.

Anyone know what type of turtle is this?

I found it outside. And from the quick research I did. It doesn't appear to be native to Tennessee

I believe it's a Terrapin....

Harmless....

That one looks pretty old.

I'd let'um go.

If it was a young one, you could probably keep it for a pet.

I'm going to ask the neighbors if they lost their turtle before I let it go.

It just showed up out of nowhere. 

And it is a big turtle

Big means it's really old.....

I think snapping turtles might grow faster, but those like you have don't.

Send a picture to tn wildlife and ask them what exact turtle it is because i might be wrong on it being a Terrapin....

turtles come and go at our place often. They usually stay in the same general area but that doesn't seem to be the case at our place.
