    Hi All:

    Jesse is currently in a Volvo VNL w/ a D13 and 10-speed MT hauling local w/ 11 deliveries today. On the 320 mile round trip loop, he is about 285 miles into it and at 9 mpg! 45,000 pounds leaving the terminal and now probably at 40,000 coming home.

    Now just 15 miles from the terminal, he is at 9.1.

    Hi All:

    And his finish.

    What was cool about this load was that he actually had 11 deliveries to car dealerships on surface streets along with the Interstate between some of them.
