    As far as fuel not burned over a distance, it's like going from 50 mpg to 79 mpg, or from 40 to 57.

    My comment that you collect your bonus every 8 miles, instead of every 40 miles is saying similar things.

    Q2 2020 – GM Sales Off 34 Percent

    [​IMG] It was inevitable although the eventual recovery could be just as spectacular.

    GM announced that it delivered 492,489 vehicles in the second quarter of 2020, a decrease of about 34 percent compared to a year ago with demand outpacing supply in the latter half of the quarter. While the industry experienced significant declines due to the outbreak of COVID-19, full-size pickup truck sales performed well, and overall sales showed signs of recovery, especially deliveries to retail customers.

    Retail sales were off by about 24 percent in the quarter, roughly in line with the industry. Retail sales in April were down the most in the quarter, off by about 35 percent compared to last year, but recovered significantly in May and June with year-over-year declines of just under 20 percent.

    To grow inventory as rapidly as possible, GM is collaborating with logistics and trucking companies to ensure vehicles are shipping as soon as they are produced. The company is well positioned with both strong empty railcar supply and haul-away capacity to respond quickly and enable the flow of new vehicles to dealers.
