I once moved an SGI Challenge XL (terminator chassis), a SGI 4D/380S  
(predator chassis), two 4D/340VGX's (desksides), an alphaserver 2100,  
and numerous boxes of parts from Calgary to Saskatoon in my old 75  
GMC pickup.   Against a 30 mph wind, I got about 10 miles/gal and  
broke one of the rear springs.

Cheers, Geoff.
