    Default 1989 Chevy Cheyanne has 95k miles and is only getting 14mpg...

    What could I do to improve mpg and also what is a good 100,000 mile tuneup for my truck (if you believe in such a thing).

    I had an alignment, new tires, new air-filter.

    How about spark plugs, wires, cap and rotor, flush and refill cooling system, and service the transmission and transfer case if its a 4x4.

    Also we need to know more info (engine size is it auto or manual, tie size over stock gears: you can get the RPO code from the site here to look it up) since i have owned 8 of these trucks, and had a 1/2ton that go 12 no matter what i did and several that wouldnt get over 15 no matter what i tried. The C/K chassis is an awsome long lasting truck but milage wasnt really its strong suit.
