mines a manual 4x4 with 35's and a lift and can easily get 18 with my steup. Best Ive gotten was 23.8 this summer going south on a road trip.

But open up the exhaust better intake and my truck is always on lvl 6 on my Smarty

How fast do you drive? How much town? How Meany stop lights? How much do you idle? There is a lot of how you drive! I get 19-20-21 it is jest how hard I push it. In town from 18 to 15 and that is how Meany stop and go. I live in a town that has 8 stop light I try to miss then all I can 18 in my home town.

Best I ever got was 25. Not typical and I was coasting and driving like a old man. Normal is 18-19.

check valve lash, keep rpm below 2100, don't use cruise control, avoid erratic acceleration. oh yeah-work it occasionally, or you'll ruin it. happy motoring!
