I looked through these forums and was surprised not to find a bunch of threads on mileage, especially with gas prices as they are ($3.35 is average around here for 87)...
I'm curious to know what other TB owners get. I've got a stock 2003 LS 4.2L with 4WD and just under 70k miles. It's been well maintained, runs well and has only had a couple of issues. I'm averaging around 15 mpg city and 19 hwy (if I'm lucky). I'm not a total leadfoot and rarely floor it. Most of the time is cruising. My daily commute is relatively flat and I don't run the AC very often.
I noticed some posts that refer to 20+ mpg. I'd like to know how that's possible.

I often wonder why people buy a truck and then wine about the mileage. What you are getting for mileage sounds about right to me, but then I donít own a Trail Blazer.
You want to know how to maximize your gas mileage?
You are not a total lead foot makes me think that you do at times get on it,
WELL DONíT GET ON IT, AT ALL !
Drive it like you have a rotten egg on the gas pedal, and I mean one that has been sitting outside in the Calyfornia heat for about a week.
You canít expect maxamum mileage if you sometimes get on it. I know sometimes in order to merge on the highway it is absolutely necessary and can understand it. But then your mileage is going to show that.
