I have had my 03 for about 9 months. It has 3.73 rear end and the auto transmission. Normal daily driving was about 15-16 mpg. That is mostly country roads, not a lot of stop and go. I took my boat to Miami this summer, a 23 foot center console, about 650 miles one way. The boat weighs about 6-6.5K pounds and is pretty tall in the wind. At 70-75 mph, I got around 9-10 mpg. After I got home, I decided to run a couple of tanks of fuel trying to get my best economy, keeping the tach below 2000 rpm, and my first tank was a measured 17.59 mpg. So if you keep your foot out of it, you can do pretty well. My sons truck with a tuner, gets about 19 mpg unloaded and 13mpg towing that same boat. YMMV:-)
