    Why in the world would you buy a fullsize truck? I swear, Trade the dang thing in on a honda or Shut up and drive it.

    Sorry for the rant, but I just think its dumb to buy a fullsize truck and complain about it fuel mileage.

    I only complain about it when my truck is not getting what its suppose to get for mpg. I would be happy with 15.

    I hate to say it but I agree... It is a Truck.. You can do what you like to it But any of the Newer Chevy or GMC models with a 5.3-6.0 will get 13-18 Avg MPG.. With all I have done and watching how I drive I Avg 14.7 and I'm happy..

    Why start a thread complaining about other peoples complaints? Isn't that a little bit hypocritical?

    I think it's a funny thread.

    When I was driving my 300C SRT8 I was lucky if I got 11.8 combined; I always had my foot in it. My little 4-banger MR2 turbo guzzled fuel, too; I could almost see the gas gauge dip when the turbo spooled up. And I'm SHOCKED (in a good way) at getting 14-16 in my lifted, big-tarred machine; it gets th best gas mileage out of any 4-wheeled vehicle I've owned, lol.


    P.S. I was getting about 11.2 shortly after I got the tires and such on it. This was before my tuner, custom tune, and re-gear. Heck, I thought 11.2 was fine for the size and weight of the machine, so I am ecstatic at 14-16.

    Haha! Well said and I agree. I also agree with what the phantom said. I only complain about my MPGs when they aren't what I think they should be. I was averaging 13.9 mpg around town the past week, and yeah I was bitchin about it because there are others around the forum and that I know who get 15-16. Thats just my two cents.

    I maybe hypocritic, but atleast I'm not a F***ing moran wanting my 4wd fullsize chevy to get 25mpg in the city. If gas mileage is that importand, sell the truck and buy a Honda.

    As for guys that has lost a few mpg, I completely understand wanting to get back what you lost. It could be a serious problem that need attention.
