    I forgot that the GMT-800's and later had Bose systems. Can't beat Bose.

    I bought an Alpine Bluetooth enabled unit years ago with CD player and Pandora capability. I didn't get the touch screen one. I primarily wanted Bluetooth for hands free phone but I also use Google play for music and have never lost a solid connection but if I'm ever out of range and have no CDs I can access hundreds of songs I put in my android anyhow. I have the factory Bose system and I think it sounds great. Only complaint... Too freaking bright! But it isn't a big display like the touch screen ones.

    Well left for Florida on Wednesday. Rolled into central Florida tonight. Total mileage on swap so far is about 9600 miles in the past 2 months. Still running good. Fuel cooler seems to be leaking or maybe the fittings? Might have a look at then before we head back to California on Monday. Avg so far this trip was 20.2 mpg.

    What's your fuel capacity with that Yukon?

    I believe its 37 or 37.5 gallons.
    Most I ever put in was 34.495 gallons. That was 717 miles between fill ups. That was cutting it a little close for comfort. The low fuel light didn’t even come on. I may adjust the gauge a bit to get it to come on sooner.

    Nah, cutting it close was when I put 43.2 gallons into my 42 gallon tank in my '98 K2500 Burb!

    Typically what I do. That's how I get a consistent fuelly reading.

    With rocking of the Burb and burping of the tank, yes. I've done that with all the vehicles I've ever owned for two reasons. 1) Maximum fuel capacity (that extra two quarts could keep you from a twenty mile walk). 2) Consistency for mileage computations. The only vehicles I've encountered that you can't do it with are the newest Ford capless fillers like on the Focus. After the nozzle kicks off, you can only put in a few tenths before it starts dumping fuel on the ground from somewhere above the tank/on the filler neck.

    Our edge was the same way, but I could sometimes milk it to where it just spills a little bit.
    That lc9 Burban we had would act up if filled to the brim. Died once or twice. My brother had a Sts? Cadillac (the v6) thing backfired out the engine literally blowing up the intake tubes one time after filling up. Was weird. Lol
    Now I now, can't really compare gas to diesel, as diesels dont run a evap system....

    You really shouldn’t do that with gasoline rigs.

    The canister can fill with fuel much sooner, instantly in some designs, and your replacing it just from that. That’s the reason the signs and stuff say do not top off.

    Nothing like handing a customer a $600+ estimate to fix there fuel smell because charcoal got into EVERYTHING from them brimming the tank. And they would scream it's under warranty, but warranty doesn't cover negligence on the owners part.
