I get 15.75 often in the city. I accelerate quite a bit also. I run the spartan 250 tune. On the highway i kiss right up on 18 sometimes, but i'm always running 80-85.

Towing the boat it dips to 12, but I baby it.

I will post in a couple weeks what kind of improvement I am getting. I ordered a spartan, delete pipe, and cold air intake because I was tired of poor fuel mileage and want more power for pulling my camper. Stock I am averaging 12-13 hand calculated and 7mpg pulling an 18k pound camper so it's got to get better.

I would like to see that mpg as well. I am in the same situation as yourself I have an 08 with 19K left until warranty expires. Also, When you guys mention cold intak are you just changing the intake to an S&B, AFE, Banks, etc.?

I ordered an S&B intake with my programmer and delete pipe. I only have 8500 miles on my truck so hopefully I don't have any problems.
