What was your trip mpg with the 5.7?
trucknkid, what sort of mpg did you get on the trip?I bought a 1998 Suburban(5.7 2wd-200,000 miles) 2 months ago and I'm kinda curious what sort of mpg I will get.It has the same drivetrain as your van,so I expect it would be maybe 2 mpg better on the hy because it has a little less aero drag than your van.I get 12-13mpg in pure city driving(not bad-my Pilot 3.6 v-6 1000 lbs lighter-only got 13-14 same driving).I'm guessing I'll get about 17 mpg or so on the interstate at 70+mph.

Hey Charlies the best I can tell ya is that my Van is a 97 with a 5.7 powerunit, avg 18MPG on highway, I also use GPS when in a town like Chicago although I grewup there I had to reroute aroute the Nothern end off Lincoln & 94 to the Southside took an extra 45Mins. all together I spent under 200 bucks which was great because I had to visit an ol Trucker friend I grew up with! an money is an object when ya gotta work from paycheck to paycheck so-around 430 Mi. (Lasing Il final dest.) & back to Minnesota. hope that helps Bud!
