    What kind of Gas Mileage are you getting with your GMC Savana or Chevy express?

    I have a 2010 1500 GMC Savana AWD with 5.3L and 3.73 gears and the computer says 15.3 mpg.

    Please state What you have. Whether it is a 1500, 2500, 3500 and what engine and gears, 2wd or AWD and what mpg you are getting?

    I have the Express 1500, 5.3L 3.42 gear, AWD. I only have less than 100 miles so let me get some miles in and I will report back. Right now it is too early to tell.

    You can reset that onboard mpg any time you want if you want to see how you do on the highway or in city exclusively. I have been resetting it when I go on a long highway drive.
    I am getting 20+ mpg on the highway 65mph and a little over 15+ in mixed driving which is around town with city and highway.
    Overall I am getting over 15 which isn't too bad and that 20+ highway is nice. LOL HOPE the onboard is accurate!!!!
    I do drive slow and I am easy on the gas pedal and I like to coast a lot so maybe the way I drive is actually getting me those numbers #'s and the onboard pc is accurate. I will find out when I do my calculations.

    This is according to the onboard pc.
    I am going to start doing my own calculations as soon as I refill the tank with gas.

    Also how are you liking your Express AWD???? I had my Savana out in some deep snow up at Tahoe on an unplowed road (2+ feet deep with hacked up snow ruts) the other day. It chewed right through with the BFG's. Real nice.

    I have 2003 Savana 1500, 5.3L V8, RWD.
    It is a explorer high-top conversion, with 265 width tires.
    73-75 MPH using cruise control, I get about 16.5 MPG.

    Cool. I didn't realize you can reset. So I reset yesterday morning. It's back to just over 14 in the city.
    As far as the AWD. Holy Crap... its awesome. Taking off from the light in the snow is pure fun. I love being next to a 4X4 and leaving them in the snow dust.
