I havent gotten to drive steady hwy (unloaded) for a long period of time yet, but i wonder if it would have that big of gap in mileage between city and hwy driving...
I can attest to this being true in my experience. When driving my 1997 1500 Ext Cab 4x4 5.2 on the freeway for 2 hours I used to get an honest 20-21mpg between 65-70 the entire way there and back. City was around 14-16 and 12mpg if I really got into the pedal. But switched to 32s and my bumper got damaged and had to be removed(waiting on extra cash to buy) and it's about 12mpg mixed....
