I've quit checking MOTS/VOTS and am just refreshing this thread, as I know that as soon as there is KZ or confirmed shipping, we'll know it here first.

BTW, again I can't say thank you enough to Chevy for extending the invite for the tour and taking personal time on Sunday to take us around, drive around the plant perimeter, etc. I'm still on a high from the entire day. It was so great to meet Shannon, Brainstormer, Chevy and Marlon. We didn't get to spend much time with Marlon, as we just bumped into him at the hot dog/refreshment area, but I kept thinking through the tour, I can't remember meeting a nicer guy than Chevy. Before we went on the trip my wife said, "you're taking some guy on your plane you've never met??". I replied, "Shannon is putting his life in the hands of a guy he's never met. Who's taking the biggest chance?" Fortunately the weather was nearly perfect, the mighty Bonanza performed flawlessly and Detroit approach control and the Detroit City airport tower were very accommodating as they let us circle around over the unicorn parking lots and JNAP (which is less than a minute via air to the runway) to take some aerial photos. On the trip home we had a beautiful sunset and the city lights of the Minneapolis/St.Paul area at night are always fun to see. It was a perfect day!!

He commented on this to a Chev dealer and they told him "it's normal for the DEF consumption to go way up while towing." I wonder what kind of milage we'll get between refills when towing upwards of 7000lb?
Towing generates higher combustion temps. which allows NOx levels to skyrocket. Therefore more DEF is required to reduce these high levels back down to concentrations that will keep the EPA happy.

Re: 2014 diesel production

I'm hoping that we're not going to be disappointed with the power output of the NAFTA version of this engine. Jeep and VM Motori both claim max power to be 240hp (179KW @3800rpm) and max torque to be 420 pounds feet(570 Nm @1800rpm) and yet VM Motori's own graphs on their website for this engine (L 630 DOHC) fall far short of these claims. According to their own graph I see max power to be about130 Kw@3800 rpm and max torque to be about 470Nm @2600rpm with only about 430Nm @1800rpm.
