I bought a 2002 Chevy 2500HD ext cab. It has about 1200 miles on it now. Most of my driving has been in town and without towing. I'm lucky if I get 11mpg. My buddy just bought the same rig in a crew cab version. He has approx 900 miles and has been driving mainly highways. He claims he is getting 17-18 mpg. But I think he just has trouble doing simple math . Any imput ?

I have about 6000 miles on my 6.0 now and average 11.5-12.5 this week I got 14.1 and i get 13 quite often I don't think I'll ever see 17-18... that's about what the duramax gets in town and a little more on the highway.

Highway only

Yea & when I mean highway only it was filled up 1 mile before getting on & filled back up with in 1/2 mile of getting off. I set the cruise control at 70 mph 90% of that time. I'm leaving on a 700 mile trip it it this weekend & I'm going to have my pop-up tonneau cover on so I can see if it help on the MPG's. ;) A friend said he got 1.8 more MPG's with his cover on so I'm going to check mine this weekend.
