    I have a 2004 Dcab 2.7L

    Does 18.5 - 19 mpg city and about 22 mpg sound about right??

    it is the dcab, so it is a little heavier im assuming than an access or reg cab. ide like tro get 21 or more city.

    what about an afe filter?? no k&n. Im not to fond of the oil

    thanks for your help

    best bet would probably be to buy something like a scangauge that gives you live mpg and drive accordingly.

    im also keeping the rpm's under 2500. I know that helps.

    but i get between 310-320 miles per tank in the city. divide that by tank size, 17 gallons, that would be around 19 pmg city. I was hoping for better than that, but well see i guess

    Divide your miles driven by fuel you put in, not just tank size. Unless you run it dry, that is! :)

    I put 16.9 gallons in it with gas at $2.61 came out to $44.50

    320 divided by 16.9

    roughly 19 mpg. I think I did that right. I suck at math!!
