SynisterHD, Rotties aren't known for their milage. I bet if you lopped of 6" from you know where, your stamina/milage would increase.

BTW, I lost some economy going to the rubber I am on now. I am looking to get a summer set for running on the highway next summer.

I really didn't get much better mileage when it was stock.

What strategy are you on? Another poster complained about the VXCF4C3 and poor mileage. However, that is the one I have. Go figure?

Now that it is getting cold up here, I expect my fuel economy to drop. BTW, I am using US gal for the numbers.

That's harsh lol I'm getting 14 hand calculated on my 2007.
My 04 got well over 600, miss that damn truck

I believe it, my truck with 31's, 3.73 gears, and edge juice on level 1 got up to 22mpg's and overhead regularly said 600+ to empty. I believe it because every truck is different, as odawg exampled. Some of these trucks can get great mileage while it seems others just can't. Don't believe for a second you can get that mileage going 80 tho.
