Re: 97 fuel mileage

I have a 6637 intake, exhaust, stage 2's and custom tunes from Beans/NLTD. Just got 19.5 mpg last tank. Running on 33's with 3.55's. Pretty good in my book. Was getting 13-15 max on TS tunes and the old engine.

But as you can see I have a bunch of other goodies that all contributed too. Check out my sig...

My jetta gets about 45mpg. My trucks weighs 7600 pounds and makes 500+ plus horses so I don't worry about mpg

Ahaha didn't even catch that until you said something. Should've been in the OBS section OP.

Re: 97 fuel mileage

depends on your foot too.. but sounds like you're getting pretty good mileage. I know some who get better but personally I see about the same. Keeping it under 60 and 2,000rpms is best.

Re: 97 fuel mileage

i'm not bent it's just the fact you cant read anything before you post something. if you were to post in the section dedicated to trucks like yours youd get more help.
