    SO I recently decided to see how much gas my lead foot actually wastes and drove conservatively on a tank of gas. From Atlanta, Ga back home (190 miles all interstate) between 65 and 70mph (below 2000rpms)and then playing nicely in the city I am at 400 miles and my gas light has not come on yet. It is really close! When I fill up I will find the average. I have is a k&N air filter. Anyone getting better or close and what mods.

    70 mph below 2000 rpms .... that's impressive.

    Is this normal? I am guessing a 6 cylinder. My straight 4 sits about 1850 - 1900 at 60 mph.

    I love getting good mileage .... it is all about smart driving.

    I have gotten anywhere from a little below 400 to a little over every time. I commute 80 miles a day...mostly freeway with some traffic driving. I don't have any mechanical mods...just light on the throttle most of the time.

    My worst tank was 20 mpg...best was 23.

    I'm an 07 DC SB 6spd 4x4. No lift, 265/75/16 duratracs on 87 octane. I did actually notice since I changed my spark plugs and air filter about a month ago, I have been getting about 20-30 miles more per tank. My drive to/from work is about25 miles @ 50mph average through horsefarms and country roads.

    What do you guys think about electric fans instead of the clutch fan to save on fuel?

    I have thought about that but I have told myself I'm going to keep the engine 100% stock. I have a history of modding vehicles and its a nasty thing to get addicted to :D. Intake and exhuast quickly turns into custom turbo kits, which turns into engine management systems, which leads to an im-practical daily driver. Its an endless cycle and a hard addiction to kick. :D

    while I am running an APR X-1, TRD CAI, and DTLH...I still manage to consistently get 400+ miles per tank with both city/highway driving combined...I hate traffic and construction on the roads so I constantly find alternative routes, mainly back roads while it may take me a little longer to get to my destination but that also means I don't have to go through so much stop and go traffic and I can remain in 6th gear while being under 2K rpms the entire time...:D

    and yes I am a 4x4...

    Welcome to the 400 club! I can clip 400 semi-regularly and have twice before when I let the tank run that far, although I usually fill up around 1/4 tank out of habit. No MPG mods to speak of, other than my tonneau which, after tracking 15 tanks before and 26 tanks after, did seem to give a very marginal improvement.
