Lifts and mileage?

The impression I have, is that those complaining about the lowest mileage, have the highest suspensions on their trucks.

Is that impression accurate or simply a figment of elevation?

I've seen my mileage go up in my truck from the day I bought it. My city driving it still averages 15 mpg, hand calculated. But on my trip to Kansas City last weekend, I got just over 19 mpg hwy, hand calculated. My truck has close to 3600 miles on it now, and it's 100% stock.

I am in about the same problem you are. Say what are your gears?
Mine are 3.31's I believe that is alot of the problem. Thinking in the future i may re-gear to 3.55's to offset the tires.
But we will see this week how the millage is after I install my H&S
