I'm anywhere 14.5-15 city and 22-25 hwy at 65-70.

I've noticed weather plays more into effect than a few mph. I drive with cruise control constantly though. My truck has the 3.92s too

I dont think Tacoma Dodge would help me since I didnt get it from them, went to Larson. I think part of my problem has been shifting, I just leave it in drive and have never shifted. Should I?
