Average city/combo:17-18 Average interstate: 20-21

Much depends on how heavy your foot is and how long you rest it on the gas pedal !

Stock 4x4 5.7 1500 with 295's I get 16mpg city (about 20-35mph) and 21mpg@62mph while I get 25mpg @ 70mph. I am only on a bullydog gt tuner which I have reprogrammed more than I have drank fluids in my life but that's what it is. I should note though using that system I have lost my cruise control~ Also I am running 89 octane because 87 my numbers were worse and the truck only has 34k miles on it~

I'm getting mid 15's mostly in town. Best I've seen is 19.5 coming back from Denver. Only thing I have done so far is a HBS 2.5" leveling kit.

Bone stock '02 QC with the 5.9L. Getting 13.3-13.8 currently city/hwy combo. I work two towns over. Recently took a trip down to Grants Pass and only got 15 on I-5... Hoping a new exhaust, polished throttle body and a tuner will help.

I've got a '95 1500 5.2L. I've got a dual cat-back flowmaster muffler with no tails on it. I've done a complete top end cleanse of the engine <500 miles ago, and ALWAYS make sure I'm keeping up with routine maintenance. I just installed a Luk Pro Gold clutch on it, and that's AMAZINGLY increased my acceleration. No more fighting to get onto freeways.

I average about 13 city & 16 highway. My city mpg is prob less than 13 most of the time. Ever since I've put the flowmaster on it, I can't keep my foot off the pedal.

I started driving the truck when gas prices were >$4/gal so I've taught myself a few tricks to ^ my mpg.

1. COAST AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE!!! I know you look stupid sometimes going down the road, but trust me!

2. Don't drive aggressively!

3. Tire pressure & routine maintenance is a MUST!!!!

4. Avoid a route that involves hills.

I know these are probably common sense to most of us, but that's why I say it. Most of us use common sense. Other people, not so much...

Default Updated Mileage!

Since I have bought my truck I have never left my city/rural area. Yesterday we took a day road trip to Bend, OR. I averaged 22.8 so was very pleased with that!

Default city driving

Keep moving,...if I see cars stopped at a red light up ahead, I'll coast or even brake slightly, and often traffic will have started to move again by the time I get there. It always takes less gas to keep rolling than to start from full stop.
