Great Family Vehicle That We Get To Drive On Free Fuel! —

We bought this truck ultimately to pull a travel trailer with, in order to replace our motorhome which gas prices had permanently benched. I have converted it to run on the waste vegetable oil that restaurants discard, thus currently saving us about $400/mo in regular fuel expenses. We already have about 40k miles on veggie oil, so the system has proven itself quite well. I bought the newest Suburban they put a Diesel (required for the conversion) in, but it's still a nine-year-old vehicle with plenty of miles... While we've had a few issues relating to its age, there have been no significant issues with the conversion thus far. It's so nice to still enjoy the freedom to jump in and take a Saturday drive to the mountains, etc., without pausing to consider whether we can justify spend the money on $4/gal fuel... We hope to put a trailer behind it this spring and resume the pleasure of camping together again. You can see more about it here: dieselplace.com/forum/garage.php? do=view&g=3908 Update 3/2014-- Well, we never did add the travel trailer. But we've added lots of miles and adventures to the ol' Burban. With around 320,000 miles now, it occasionally offers us some of the troubles typical of an aging truck. But overall, it's still a prized 'member of the family'. The original engine and tranny still run great! Recently I put pencil to paper to calculate how much money the veggie oil conversion (well over 125,000 miles on veggie oil by now) has saved us. If I'd spent the typical prices for Diesel fuel for all the nearly-free veggie oil I've burned during the past few years, I'd have spent well over $30,000 that I haven't had to!

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Big, tough, SAFE vehicle with lots of comfort features. Looks nice, drives pleasantly.

Cons: Any aging vehicle with lots of miles is going to spend the occasional weekend at the mechanic's garage...

Bought to pull small trailer for my hot air balloon and to haul lots of crew and passengers. It performed the task that I wanted it to VERY well.
