I would argue, that we have seen am inprovement in fuel economy. If I
were to drive a little slower, say at 65 or 70 mph, my MPG would be
about 14 to 14.5mpg. It seems I am always running late so I drive 80mph
:-) 14 to 14.5 is great for a 1 ton 4x4, powered by a 454cid engine.
The 14 to 14.5 isn't a guess, either. I was getting that before I
started leaving late for work.
