Gas Mileage
 
Anyone with a 5.9l gas engine get only 10-11 MPG on the highway and only 8 back roads? I basically want to know what I should be getting.

I have a 2500 and I can get about 300 kilometers on a half tank
I also have 33'' tires on it, no lift
When I do som major off roading she likes to suck fuel though

My '99 with shortie headers and single flowmaster gets 15-16.
My '08 with MDS gets 12 driving it easy and gentle. I don't see how they advertise 20 in the new commercials.

i had a 5.9 4x4 for 6 years :smileup:
shortie headers with high flow cat ,no muffler ...made no diffrence,( made it sound like it had extra 100 bhp)mpg wise
did around 10-11mpg most of its life :Hey:
once did 16 mpg :158:
easy to get it to do under 10 mpg :str:
here in the UK we pay around double the cost of usa gas which makes low mpg real nasty on the pocket :smiledown:
