more mileage talk

So, i was real concerned about my mileage during this last winter.. i was getting around 200 miles to a 29 gallon tank, pretty piss poor if you ask me.. i was beginning to think my truck was broken or something.. i dont know what they changed with the fuel now, if anything, but i have gone 60 miles on 1/8th of tank... pretty darn good if you ask me..

Holy crap that was worse than my 05. I usually get 280 miles to about a tank. Changed the filters and no change. Got the 02 and that gets 420 miles to 24 gallons or 17.5 MPG.
