    Now that I've had my 2010 Traverse for a few weeks, I'm pretty much settled in that I'm going to get about 24 MPG freeway going between 60 and 65 with cruise control on. City is much different, depends on what type of stop-and-go traffic I'm in, but overall I'm right about 16 MPG total city and highway.

    I'll repost my mileage since it has changed a bit.
    Highway: Best: 21, Worst: 12, Normal: 16-18
    City: Best: 12, Worst: 6, Normal:10-12
    Combined: Best: 18, Worst: 12, Normal: 14-16
    Factory EPA estimates: Highway: 16, City: 12, Combined: 14

    So I'm running close to factory numbers with 198,000+ miles.

    On the winter mix I'm running ~13.8 city and ~16 hwy. I get about ~14mpg combined since most of my driving is city. Factory numbers for this truck are 15-17mpg, so I'm pretty pleased to be running only 1mpg under par given the age of the truck and my mods.

    2012 Duramax
    Getting about 12-14 city
    16-21 highway depending on speed. 70mph gets around 20 consistent while anything over drops it quick.
    Towed 12,000lbs @ 85mph Friday night for 100 miles and got around 12 mpg from Central to Southern KY.

    Thinking about a programmer to try to get the non towing mpgs up a lil more. (is it worth it?)

    I just tallied it all up. Since my engine swap, I averaged 13.5mpg over 1500 miles. That was some highway, some city, and some dirt and 4x time thrown in. Huge improvement over my last setup!! :glasses:

    I average about 12 in my 94k1500. Worst was about 9 but that was with a lot of 4wd and stop and go.

    2003 2500HD 4x4 extended cab I get 11.6mpg.
    That was on the tires that were on the truck and before sea foam and oil change.
    Tires were 305/70R16 cooper discover stt with little tread left. Just put on a set of 285/75R16 BFG all terrain ko's. Also ran some sea foam through the intake with a fuel injector cleaner in the tank and going to give it a good oil change. I'm hoping to see 13mpg, but I'm not holding my breath. Lol.

    Tanked up today and made a even 27 mpg. Sure wish it would stay that way throught the NW Indiana winter! All my bolt on mods and driving techniques have paid off. The truck is a Sierra Classic 4.3L, 5 speed manual.
