Just over 19 mpg on a 5 hour trip, no gunning it either. My mileage sucks. Maybe I need new heads and pistons.

Still legal in 16 states. It's happy. It's fun. It's Happy Fun Car.

my mileage has increased a little after the 4.10 gear install...maybe that's what you need.

welcome to alberta we eat cow, drill oil and rope calves

wants to push you down a flight of stairs to see if you are like a slinky or if you bounce like a ball... either way, I am quite sure I will be amused

I get around 19 - 20 mpg on long trips running 75 or so. How are you getting 26 mpg? are you going off the computer or actually starting with a full tank, recording miles driven and then seeing how much gas you have to put back in? 26 sounds too high for the LS3 depending on your speed.

On my vacation I had an 8 hour drive each way. On the way there, I got 24.5 (CAI, DT shorties, no muffs, Diablo Perf Tune) after getting the SC installed and dyno-tuned I got 27 on the way home! 75mph avg.

Of course when I am in the boost, things are very different!
