    Gas mileage acutllay can change dramatically depending on how you drive and what you do with your vehicle. Someone who punches it off the line and hauls stuff all the time will see very low mileage. Driving as if you have a cup of coffee on the dash that's about to spill will help dramatically with the mileage.

    Typically we see between 15-18mpg normal driving and 10-11mpg when towing.

    Don't use the DIC [Driver Information Center] as they've been found to off by 10% ... In my '03 Z71 w/20"s and 4:10's in the rear I was getting 13.7 in town and just over 17 MPG's on the highway w/the cruise set.
