More mileage = Better gas mileage

Well got 17K on the odometer and the mpgs are going up. Was averaging around 22.5 mpg since I bought the truck brand new. Filled up today and now I am up to 24 mpg. No different in my driving back and forth to work. 70 mph most of the way with the cruise set. Haven't even switched to synthetic oil in the motor or rear end yet. Hope it gets better when that happens.

Also, when you do change out to synthetic gear oil in the diff, don't neglect the oil in the transmission -- similar gains can be found here.
Oh yeah that one too

I looking forward to that. Only 1500 mile on my new 4x4 4 cylinder at the moment. Back roads and hills get me around 19 mpg

With the season change the mpg will rise quite a bit. Your station probably switched blends for spring.

Because our sixth gear is almost the same as 4th on most truck sticks.

It'll get 20+ reliably with the right mods, speeds, and driver skill. The last time I got under 20 mpg was ten months ago, my Jan 24th fillup.
