Anyone else here still keeping track of your fuel economy? I'm doing a combined 17.2. I'm tracking mine on fueleconomy.gov. My best tank so far was 20.1

I have a trip to Vegas in 3 weeks and I'm looking forward to seeing my mileage. I'm driving from Denver so I'll have some good flat stretches through Utah to keep it on cruise. 24.5 is awesome!

damn my 06 5.3i's best tank was 15.8( that was to/from big bear)our average is 14.8 mixed driving....
This is one car that if you are a lead foot it isn't friendly with gas mileage. Then again the 5.3 and the Aero is a quick car. That being said, this is one car that I treat as if it is a 4 cylinder econobox, meaning I just pretend it doesn't have good acceleration. If you "lightfoot" it, you should get around 17 mixed driving.

What is you driving style?

i tried the whole conservative driving thing, drove it like i do my POS 95 4cyl ranger and still only netted mid 15s for a few tanks so ive gone back to my regular more aggressive style to get 14.8
