    hmm thats weird, i just now checked my gas mileage, it was right about on empty so i had about .5 to a gallon left, i started at 33115 with a full tank and now its on 33508, so roughly high 29 mpg, mostly driven on the interstate though, but i also got a bed cover for christmas lol, so i figured that helped a lil bit

    yeah running with tailgate down robs mpg i picked up 1-2 mpg with tonneau cover..... and tailgating a rig can pick you up 8 mpg (per mythbusters LOL) so longmuir just start tailgating LOL but seriously if you got 14 before...now with winter in effect the gas sucks and your bound to get less...and 4mpg sounds about right

    i just unhokked my intake from the fender so it takes hot air from the engine compartment and it helped it out today. back to about 15 or so i gues its a start lol. and i always draft on the way to school. 60 miles a day gets old real quick so i save anyway i can lol

    I've been driving 90ish miles each way for the past 4 months to work. Thankfully I have someone to split gas with. Nothing is as boring as 90 miles of NJ turnpike.
