    Default Why oh why cant the 4.3 be better

    Can someone tell me why gm can make the camaro have a v6 that gets 26mpg but the 4.3 only gets 16 to 17mpg.... If the truck was as quick as the camaro then I would complain..

    Your economy has something to do with trying to push a 2 1/2 ton box around....
    When you hear hoofbeats, look for horses not zebras.

    I guess I'd better not complain for the 26.9 mpg I realized on my last tank.

    Well, for starters it's a truck...Don't know why everyone always expects to get as good as mpg as cars. I'm lucky to break into the teen's with mine.
