    Just my slant but .... your mpg should go up with less gas in the tank because you are carrying less weight. A little over 6 pounds a gallon. [​IMG]

    I drive rather slow but the truck is as aerodynamic as a brick. The tires dont help. I plan on regearing to help a little with the MPG but realistically, I dont worry about the MPG. This truck isnt built to save on gas. My needle usually hits 3/4 tank at 70 or so miles. I have my wifes Honda Fit for a good gas saver.

    I get maybe 120 or so on half tank 270 maybe on a full tank. Never jack rabbit or accelerate above 2k rpm. Check my trip computer before next fill and I never seem to make it to 300. Bone stock.

    all red x's on my work computer...


    I go over 2k when getting onto the freeway and it doesnt hurt my mileage but during normal driving I keep it under 2k and never go over 70mph. as soon as you get to your parking spot kill the truck. letting your truck idle for any ammount of time hurts your mpg.
