03 Silverado K1500 reg cab long bed - 4.8 4x4 - auto trans - OEM size tires - no mods at the moment.
I run synthetic fluids in the crankcase, diffs, and transfer case. Stock fluid in the trans. 87 octane fuel.
50/50 I live in city, but take freeway everywhere.
I just verified via 3 150+mile calculations that I am getting 15.9 mpg.
I am planning fuel filter, tranny fluid (synth) and filter, CAI, catback, and diablo tuner in the next 3 months to improve HP and MPG. Will post results as they come in.
