Curious what everyone is getting for gas mileage on their Trail Boss? I have the 4.3L V6 and only have 4,500 miles on it. I'm getting 15.6mpg. Don't know if this is typical or if it will continue to get a bit better with more miles under it's belt?

On my 6.2 my 400 mile average is 15 (about 70/30 town/highway), I have about 1,800 miles now!

I have a 5.3 and average 15.6-15.9, in my eyes that’s pretty decent seeing the tire size.

Has anyone compared the difference with and without a Tonneau cover? Just curious if the aerodynamic effect outweighs the added weight of the cover?

I'm at 15.6 average with about 70/30 city/highway driving. That's with a 6.2

I don't have many miles on my 6.2 but it's at 17.2. I don't drive over 70 mph. Maybe that's why.

I got my highest is at 20 cruising at 60-65 MPH. Then I trashed the 50 mile average because my highest is an even number and I don’t want it to change lol.

of course steelboss has the worst gas mileage here.. he can’t get a stupid grin off his face lmao ??

haha, yea, sucks. Guess it's better than paying double in cost for diesel. Hopefully, it's a wash.
