    Not that easy. 3rd party plugin and linking accounts to facebook. It can be done but not that simple.

    OK, t4r.org has likes enabled - didn't realize it would involve linking to FB accounts..forget that. Linked accounts on yotatech is a major PITA, people forget their log in and end up setting up multiple accounts and wonder why one user name is different from another
    It is sorta cool

    Just arrived back in Bend! Poobago has been in Arizona since December. Spent the past month in the RV. RV life is really good. Still haven't paid to park/camp anywhere.

    Also figured out the ScanGauge a bit more too. Started watching GPH (gallons per hour) and LOD (engine load). Getting the ratio correct really boosts the MPG. Best tanks 18.6 and 18.7. Not bad with the lift, off road tires and HUGE size/weight. Its lifetime average remains at 17mpg. It got 17.1mpg driving 4 Mountain passes around 7k ft back roads to Oregon. Of course, I don't drive over 65mph and typically around 60mph. Slow, relaxed speed.

    How is it that our 4x4 rigs get such horrible mileage?? Heck my Taco barely hits 20mpg and that's with 4 boosted hampsters and it's half the weight and only 4 tires not 6.

    Planning to do several more upgrades this year. And of course, more trips! Selling the house in Bend. Moving to stuff to Arizona and more traveling!

    Did I miss something? What is ScanGauge?
    Biff - short for Bifford aka - Byph
    There is no best vehicle. It depends on the terrain, tires, driver, luck, and lots of happenstance.

    https://www.scangauge.com/ - Plugs into OBDII port and gives digital read out of most ECU data. Really great for monitoring the vehicle.

    You have gone through a lot of different adventure vehicles already. Have you encountered limits with your current setup that you are trying to overcome or are you just looking for a new experience/ toy to play with?
