    Gas vs Diesel fuel price

    I have 21k on my Suburban, at most I have used 4 boxes from Costco (~$15 each), plus two pump fills (~$12 each). That's $84. Round up to $100, that's 0.005c/mile. Pretending I remembered incorrectly, let's say 8 boxes, $150 total, that's 0.007c/mile. My lifetime MPG is ~24+. So for every...

    Bay City MI to Calhoun GA on one tank of diesel

    I have to agree, I thought the 5.3 was fine but the diesel just is so much better. I also agree completely with your earlier post - the diesel should be the default engine. It is just so good with this vehicle lineup. As far as saving money, at 68k for this, saving a few bucks is secondary...

    Bay City MI to Calhoun GA on one tank of diesel

    In my area (Seattle), diesel is now ~5, and regular 4.7, so yeh, much easier to make up that cost difference fast.

    Bay City MI to Calhoun GA on one tank of diesel

    I came across this recently, for some odd reason: Good analysis of the bottom line. It is better, even with increased fuel costs, but does take some miles to make up for the up front costs. I don't tow, but from what I have heard, the 3.0 diesel is great at it. The low end torque makes this...

    General Motors announces they are DROPPING Apple CarPlay:

    accroding to reports, the ha I agree they were stupid examples, but I think the overall point was that it may make sense in some ways

    General Motors announces they are DROPPING Apple CarPlay:

    yeah, old news (sorta). Initially i was like waaaaaaa? I use it al the time and like it a lot for integration of mapping, music, etc. I guess what I like most about it is I can do stuff on my phone before leaving the house (e.g. map search) and it will be ready for when i am in the car. It is...

    Is it worth jumping to a 23 Ultimate Denali from 21 Denali?

    for that amount, you could probably hire a part-time driver for the year!

    2023 Yukon 3.0 Duramax Denali XL Order Timeline

    Not sure if it is helpful, but I have ordered two cars from Chevy/GMC Bellevue. The 2022 Suburban was a Lemon replacement, so probably not helpful (it was accepted obviously within a week or so). However, I ordered a Bolt EUV last November, and it was accepted in 3 days, built within a month or...

    DEF tank capacity = 5.4 gal

    5.4 gal Didn't see this anywhere in a forum search, so thought I'd put it here. Filled up at a truck stop yesterday (you have to prepay), and way overestimated how much I needed. With 3 bars left on the gauge, it took about <3 gal to fill to overflow....

    Chip Retrofit Lawsuit?

    I got the vehicle end of last April. Heated seats went in in December, heated steering wheel 3 weeks ago. Still waiting on the parking sensors. I'm slightly annoyed, but I did get $125 worth of "points" (for a late heated steering wheel) that I was able to use on a EUV. I do want those parking...

    Bay City MI to Calhoun GA on one tank of diesel

    Gotcha. I recalled you had some sort of saga... After 4 trips in for the camera system, two sides of bad lifters, and the transmission failing (67 days in for service in 9 mo. - musta been built in a Friday).....I got them to rebuy/replace, and went with the diesel. Love it, engine feels...

    First long road trip

    I took my first long road trip in the car last week. I have used it to go 350mi one way several times, but never an extended family trip. Car is 1 year old. Duramax LT Sig with max tow. Trip was Seattle > Oregon > Idaho > Utah > Las Vegas - Nevada > Idaho > Orgon> Seattle Overall 2650mi, got...

    Def usage - seemed to drop really fast

    Yeah, it seems like my DEF usage is way higher than that all of a sudden. I also feel like I am not getting the MPG I was getting a few months back. I am wondering if it has anything to do with some ECM(?) update that some people have reported. I filled 2.5g a month or so ago, and had driven it...

    Def usage - seemed to drop really fast

    So I was on a drive last night, some winter/mountain driving, 370mi one way, temps around/below 30 most of the time. Speed between 65-74. About 60 miles into the drive, I got a 995mi DEF warning. I had about 300 miles to go, thought it shouldn't be a problem. I checked, there were 3 bars left...

    buying 23 suburban LS diesel maybe

    I had a 2021 LT sig 5.3, and lemon-traded for an equivalent 2022 diesel. Overall probably the best car I've ever owned. The 3.0 diesel is an awesome choice, quiet, not smelly at all, way more low-end torque. Just a great engine, IMO. Right now, combined, I am getting about 24.4mpg, but...

    Where do you get your oil changed?

    yeah maybe DIY in the future, but for now, not gonna do it. Thanks for the input, I feel like the dealer is the best option right now. I'd consider an experienced garage, but I don't think it'd be any cheaper. Thanks!

    Where do you get your oil changed?

    Just curious where people are getting the diesel oil changed? I’ve used the dealer 2x now, which is atypical for me (usually 30-50% more for standard oil changes there). But with the diesel, I feel like I’d rather use the dealer. I called Goodyear and Firestone. Goodyear had no idea “we’ve never...

    Diesel Cap

    oh and when filling, it sets nicely inside the little cubby where the hinge fits into when the fuel door is closed.

    GM Corporate Escalation?

    half full verses half empty... I understand where you are coming from, believe me. I had vehicle out of my hands, sitting at the dealer, for 60+ days in the first 11 months, ~28 in the first month of ownership. At many points, I just wanted MY vehicle in my hands. OTOH, I got a Tahoe rental...
