having the huge rake with the nose to the ground makes the biggest difference with your mpg. That is why the nose is so low and they add that big air dam at the bottom of the bumper. If you can keep the air from traveling under the truck, you reduce the drag significantly. When you level it, you change the air drag on the truck. Add an extra 10-20 lbs on the end of the axles and you have more resistance to spin. Kind of sucks but it is more functional and looks much better.

I know when I did a CAI and the exhaust on my Silverado I gained about 1mpg. Not bad for a $250 investment.
