    Default 2000 GMC Savana 6.5L Diesel MPG?

    I just bought a 2000 Savana 6.5L Turbo cargo van and wonder what can I expect to get out of it?

    Thanks!

    Our resident clatter clatter expert says he can get you mid 20's at reasonable highway speeds with the somewhat modified beefed up 6.5's he installs as replacements for 5.7 gas motors($6000 installed- pretty good price).
    I would guess a dead stock one would get about what Joeairforce says- 17-20 mpg.
