The 35mpg Mog owners response....
I've owned it roughly 5 years, and the motor that it came with is barely broken in. I imported it from Germany, and, with all sincerity, it *does* get more mileage per gallon than any vehicle I've ever owned. I've done the math, and with a 20 gallon tank I've averaged 700-780 miles per tank, not kilometers. I know that there are a few "unimog mechanics" out there that claim that those particular vehicles cannot possibly get that much per gallon, but whoever built my mogs engine in Germany did something right. Diesel engines do get better mileage, and my mog is living proof.
Thank you for your response and well wishes.
I forgot to even mention the "wenches"....what a nutcase...??!!!
