    I was blown away when I actually determined I got 17mpg. I was going to be exstatic if I got 14mpg, but I definately didn't expect 17. My computer on the truck said I was getting 17.4 average on that tank. At first I didn't really believe it, but when I actually did the calculations it came out to 17.38 mpg.

    I filled the tank when I left the dealership. I traveled 107 miles exactly by the time I pulled into the gas station near my house. I put in 6.155 gallons, which when you do the math comes out to 17.3842404549147 mpg. So my computer was right on.

    I'll see what I get tomorrow when I have a little more mixed driving, probably 60% highway and 40% city.

    Wow man congrats! I had to drive about an hour to get my 03 6liter also. I get no where near 17 though I get usually 10 loaded or unloaded. I want a truck similar to yours with the duramax next year

    I am really sorry you don't like my English, Why would I give him advice to do an engine swap on a truck he just got? Let him enjoy his new ride and when he wishes to do the swap I'll give him any advice.
    I don't need to know perfect English to do some engine swap, I have done so many that giving advice on how to is a simple matter to me.

    Besides, my translator gave me that option...................
