    I don't know, some of you clowns drive 60 mph trying to save $10 a week on gas, and still don't get the 20 mpg as advertised.

    I monitor my gas frequently and rarely do I drop under 20 mpg on the highway.
    My blood pressure raises when people don't drive at least 10 over in the fast lane so trust me, I drive the piss out of it and still manage to get good fuel.
    I have stock everything and tire pressure is always just a hair under max.

    Again, I just took a 500 mile trip with lots of hills, a traffic jam and averaged 75 and got to 90-95 at times (down hill). Still 20 mpg ?

    Either I have a freak truck or people have Parkinson's and can't control the peddle.

    Consider yourself lucky?

    What do you want us to say? You're coming off as a bit of a douche. I get 19mpg with my lift, tires and armour. So technically I get better mileage than you do. Why is that? Can't you control your truck? Do you pee in the tank to fill it? WTF dawg?

    Because I'm assuming that's what you wanted?

    OP, you couldve just gone into the "how much mileage are you getting" thread and said "HAI GAIS! I GET 20 MPG AVG!" but noooo, you had to start a thread...And sound like a douchecanoe too.

    Btw, i found an explanation for your said MPG (Besides the fact that you're comparing your STOCK EVERYTHING to our modded trucks):

    The amount of teh derps is overflowing, creating a positive pressure inside your DC. This pressure pushes actually PUSHES teh derps out of the cab (through the AC vents) where it gets reverse-filtered through the cabin air filter, and converted to Herps. Then, the derps is so strong with you that it pushes the converted HERPS outside the engine bay! where it gets sucked into your SKUUP and back into your engine! The herps retard the gas into thinking it's a higher octane, hence MORE MPGs!

    Btw. My 07 civic gets around 32 MPG.
    Why do I get more MPG than you fools?

    It must be because of my flux capacitors... or maybe my synthetic blinker fluid is helping
