I noticed there isn't an option for, REALLY STINKIN' BAD! But I love my truck and my mods aren't easy on the tank/wallet either! i just have to learn that not EVERYONE wants to race me to the next light! (Even the guy in the Kia Rio). Honestly, probably 12 city/ 14 hwy give or take 10 miles.

After adding the tuner and CAI, went from between 16.8-17.3 all the way up to between 18.6-20.2.

I am pretty impressed how well the truck benefited from those.
