Before the lift, I was getting 13 in my 1500 Z-71. After the lift with 35's, it was 11, with 3.73 gears. Really needed 4.56 though.

I get 13-14 around town with my big block (8100) and 4.10s. Upto about 15 on the highway.

A lot less towing.
I get 12 driving around town . With a 5.3L

I could get that. :D

I am very easy on it (running stock 245s too). Its a 32 mile RT commute, all city, but I leave at 5 am and usually don't come home until after 7 so its not like I am stop and go traffic. I just travel at posted speed limits and not too agressive.

If I blast away from every stop light though, it starts dropping.

Towing the trailer I have got anywhere from 6-10, average about 8mpg with 19 klb gross.

Best tank was 17 mpg, all highway in the winter in the mtns... cruise control at 65 mph, no a/c, roads were dry so 2wd.
