    I’m sure there are tons of threads on fuel mileage, wondering if mods like a K and N filter or new intake etc. will improve mileage or links to other threads, thanks

    You are correct, there are lots of threads.

    There's no magic to be had for improvements.

    TW consensus is its a truck. MPG is best derived from something built for that. Like a Corolla or Prius.

    Thanks bro That’s exactly what I’m looking for, I’m not looking for Prius mileage, but once I lifted I dropped below 15mpg. I have a 6mt and I drive the piss out of it so looking for a couple mods to help.

    Once you lift and add tires you’re pretty much screwed anyways. Are you calculating your actual mileage?

    Yep , I’ve checked it, my computer is pretty close though, within .5 mpg just curious if a intake and filter are worth the money, I have plenty of power but a little HP improvement wouldn’t hurt

    Ive seen many k&n filters installed and they have always been black and dirty. Do people even know they have to clean them eventually?

    I typically get 19-21 mpg in my stock height SR V6 auto in summer and 17-18mpg in winter, the difference being in 4wd all of the time. I don’t drive like a grandpa but I’m not super aggressive either, and stay at or under 70mph or so on the highway (our speed limits are 65).

    Someone on here put a 3rd Gen on a dyno, ran it with a stock filter and then no filter, there is nothing to gain as the stock filter already flows more air than the engine can use.

    Yeah driving habits are not gonna change, it’s fun to drive and I am gonna drive the shit out of it, so from what I gather I should just save my money and spend it on gas

    I’ve gained 0.0000001 MPGs on mine. And it just gives a little better throttle response, no noticeable HP improvements. I will say though that it does sound really nice. If you decide to get one, make sure to get an intake that has an enclosed air box as well to help with the dust control. I’m running an Airaid intake. I would’ve never done it but this one came up as new opened box item on eBay for $150 so couldn’t pass that up.
