We had several such over the 15 months and 40,000 we spent with this Toyota Tacoma. The first about five months and miles into the test, then road warrior Gall and the Tacoma were to New York to retrieve a 3744-pound 300SD that we had purchased and in our diesel-beater cross-country race to Los [Battle of the Diesel Beaters, April 2006].
