    That's my plan, if they launch them in 17s also. Probably a year or so out?

    We can start a hypermiling club. Let's all get TE37x's or RPT1s!

    225s at 60psi!

    I had a friend who used to hypermile. Way too slow, a lot of Polish overdrive, and bump starting. It was not fun in the right seat.

    I hear you!

    Still with less MPGs, I would not like this thing any less. Fits me like a glove with a few easy mods.

    I kind of agree, it keeps growing on me. I just put on some sliders, can't wait to beat the shit out of the mall parking lot this weekend.

    Wheelchair ramps are my favorite. That is where I got the materials from for my sliders-to-be.

    Agreed. That's got to create havoc when OVTune is trying to come up with a "one size fits all" tune. For those who have responded with their mileage, which tune are you running?

    The Grabbers I'm running are 53#... Same as the old KO2s... Couldn't bring myself to get an SL rated tire, I load and tow heavy enough on occasion that I wanted the extra margin of safety.

    Plus it's hard to find a good white letter out tire on SL...:cool:

    i'm on the BFO tune, which was the test file just prior to 1.05FOB which is the latest performance release most are running. this truck is the most sensitive drive ever regarding mileage. i can run to Dallas and back (about an hour each way) at 80mph and one day it will be 17.5 and another day it will be 20.0. some relating to head vs tailwinds, some relating to how i work the throttle and when, etc. first two years with the truck i basically never saw higher than 18. after BFO i decided to relearn how to drive the thing since there's much more power and i don't need to dig for it as much. then my mileage went from avg 17.5 to around 18.5 avg.

    I'm running 91 base and getting 18-19 city/hwy. If it was all hwy, it'd be closer to 20, HOWEVER that's here at higher elevation. Down lower I couldn't beat 17. Prior to any kind of a tune, I was 22-23...but the thing drove "faggy" (for lack of a better term).

    I'm on 87 Base for now and have run it the longest. I have tried 87 FOB and 91 FOB. All three tunes netted me the same 20.5mpg.

    I'm still trying to figure out how a brand new Chevy Suburban that weighs ~7000lbs and has almost 400 horse power can get 18-19mpg...
