Re: 04' escalade has horrible gas mileage??...
I would pull some spark plugs and look at them, my 02' Z06 seemed a little "flat" at first, I looked at the plugs and 4 of them were gapped at .125 +, and the other 4 were over .080, the gap called for .060, so you may want to check that.
Check your tire pressure. Take your 3rd row seating out and any other dead weight. Try using the cruise control as much as possible. Each one of the 3rd row seats weighs 55 pounds. Drive at 65 to 70. An extra 10 miles more an hour can really eat a lot of gas. Hope that helps.
