Guys I gota good laugh yesterday and figured Id share... I had a guy with a COMPLETELY STOCK 06 megacab drw 4x4 try and tell me that he was getting 17-18 mpg pulling his 30 foot horse trailer and getting 27-28 mpg driving 75-80 on the interstate :lol3::lol3:.... I asked him where his magic stick was and asked if he would strike my truck with his mileage magic wand

Maybe he subtracted instead of divided his numbers or added a zero

I agree 100% On the HWY crusing between 75-80 I have gotten 20-21+ with the truck in my sig. And that is with a 7" lift and 37" tires:thumbsup

It seems the worse fuel prices get, the more people fudge their fuel mileage. Apparently, it helps to ease the pain. Well, im no lier, mine gets 17-18, going down hill, on a good day.
