that MPG sounds about average.... like stump said just check your fuel filter and your tire pressure... other than that those numbers sound decent

Filters...Filters...Filters

I just got my 2001 SD and was getting 12.5 MPG checked accurately by filling all the way up the neck every time.
Replaced fuel filter and got 13 MPG.
Replaced a clean (not new) K&N filter in the stock box with a Fram ToughGuard filter and bumped it up to 14.5+ MPG.
I'm looking for more filters to replace!
