This thread sure went downhill.
It started with the discussion of DEF in a truck that has used 6 tanks of gas, now it's talking about rolling coal and Honda Civics.

I might as well derail it more by saying my DD is a Subaru Crosstrek with a bunch of lights I added. I'm tempted to put a lift kit on it.

I have a tuned and deleted 230hp/375lb-ft (stock is 180hp/280lb-ft) 2.0L diesel BMW 328d which I bought as a fun yet fuel efficient commuter car for my 40 mile one way commute. Down the winding roads, the car is fun to drive, but I would still rather be in my truck in any other conditions. The truck is a blast to drive tuned which is why I generally like to drive it on weekends over the car. The torque pull at 1,300-1,800 of the truck is not something the 328d can match since it doesn't start to really pull until around 1,700 rpm due to it being a higher revving diesel with a shorter bore/stroke ratio.

Since the thread is completely off the rails...
Friends have a Crosstrek that he put a 2 or 3” lift and some little mud terrains on.
It looks really cool. And I fitted the gas bill from Seattle to CDA a couple months ago and it got an honest 27mpg even with the lift, 4 adult size people, 150lbsof hockey gear and mud tires, doing 80-85mph in the open.
