Granite I drive conservatively, but this is an actual pic of my odometer from my cell phone! This was nearly 500 miles from my next scheduled oil change.  I only reset my info center when I have my oil changed, so I get an average between changes! In the winter with all of the idle time I average between 25 and 26 MPG with my I-4 Standard Shift!

Ford is aggressively going after the light commercial vehicle applications!

I was at the auto show today and witnessed some awesome sights. First off I want to say that I looked at every automaker spending several hours with each brand to get a feel for the competition, but I will limit this thread just to commercial market. It seems like they are Ford's major target at present. Toyota only offers a roof console that has a business card holder and two places for worker's safety glasses. While Dodge does have new bed side rail storage bins which are reminiscent of those on the Chevy Avalanche! (still a good Idea though)


Ford on the other hand eliminated the need for a laptop on the jobsight, installing an in-dash wireless internet ready business command center!  I submit to you "Ford Work Solutions" (or FWS) I took a bunch of pics while I was given the Demo sitting in a production version of the 2009 F-150 (it is also confirmed for availability in the E-Series in 09', and I will guess also the Transit, and Transit connect along with any other commercial market we serve), but I will only post the pics I think showcase it's purpose the best! If you can see it well enough this is a touch screen FWS head unit that is connected to the Google server via wireless internet! It also comes

It also has a keyboard! A mouse! 

And a printer for printing out invoices, and any business/non business related material at the click of a button! It is an indash PC that can link to you home/office PC, to retrieve info, report onboard inventory changes. Such as a appliance repairman would have to record to restock. Meaning you can update parts inventory in you office PC remotely from your vehicle. That is just the beginning, the FWS also saves links to 9 of your favorite sights on a single page that can be easily selected with the touch of the screen or a mouse

It will also track your entire fleet while giving you their location of your other service vehicles, and telling you their direction, speed of travel, and even idle times!
This is not even the end of the advancement to the FWS, it also has sensors that read you equipment inventory. That is right, you place a small sticker on all of you important tools, and much like a theft sensor at a retail store these sensors can tell you if the tools are in your vehicle.

For instance you have a identity sticker on your concrete saw. If you try to leave the job sight without it when you start up your vehicle a warning indicator will alert you that it is not onboard. Hell it just saved you from having to buy a new $350.00 concrete saw! The best part besides it's built in navigational system, is that it can be retro fitted to older year vehicles that did not come with it from the factory! And it will also be available to accompany a SYNC entertainment system if you opt for it
