I'm not in any gas mileage contest with anyone, but I gotta say I'm somewhat impressed with the mileage out of my '12 Express so far. I was expecting horrid mileage because of the power and some of the comments on this forum. I haven't found that to be the case.

My driving has been a little freeway and a lot of in-town driving...and I've been stomping on the gas pedal way too much getting used to the fun power this thing has. My worst tank was 15.8. Nomal has been about 16-16.5. My last fillup after doing the exhaust and intake mod was 16.9 with tons of running around town doing Christmas shopping. And since the exhaust mod, I've been mashing the gas pedal something terrible. Frankly, I can see how they claim 20 for straight highway driving if it's getting this right now. I am not disappointed one bit with this kind of mileage, with this kind of power, driving in this manner. When I start behaving after the new wears off, I'm fairly sure it'll improve.
