No math error, you don't have to believe it. With throttle body space, programme, intake, exhaust, and mass flow air sensor, those ARE the numbers and always pump premium fuel! Please don't hate cuz you got a brick in your foot!

I get 18-19 mpg with 87 octane. and that is with a 4wd 5.3L ext cab 2000 Silverado.
If you live in san Diego and get this driving there then that really is unbelievable.
I just did a trip 1600 miles @70 mph. ave was 18.3 mph hills traffic and some back road driving. 87 octane ..shell gas. it is very warm where I am now ...

To tell you man, every upgrade I've done is for mpg. I did have a F350 with a diesel for towing, and I used the Chevy to go to and from family visits and work, every so often I'd take my dirt bike to the track. With the programmer I can monitor everything the engine and tranny does. By keeping the throttle percent at 25% or less and tow haul on all the time. Something to remember is your throttle percent, just because your rpms are at 2500 before it shifts, your foot is what's controlling the fuel being sprayed into the motor. Every small upgrade may only add minimal increase in mileage, but adding them all up and understanding how they all work together everyone that reads this can get the mileage. Good luck everyone!!
