:-) It just got worse recently. Now I'm curious... looks like I've been
buying fluid since July, and spent $61 so far. Dang. If I had gotten off
my butt sooner, I could have ordered the hoses from Rock Auto for that
much. I've got a ways to go before I hit Canadian Tire's quote of over
$500 though (yes five hundred just for two hoses, labor is extra).
I guess until I get this fixed I'll just get in the habit of checking the
level every time I get in the truck.

Not sure the ratio, I can try to plan out the parking but jokers like to
park way too close while I'm in the store. I don't have to parallel park
anywhere I normally go.

Sorry, I didn't specify... it's the '01, which is almost the heaviest
configuration available (although we went with the 4.7 instead of 5.9, so
it could have been worse).
