I have a 2007 escalade with 24" rims on it. Only aftermarket part is magnaflow exhaust and k&n filter. Should my mpg be this low? I normally drive city streets, when i do drive freeways i get about 14.5mpg. Any help is appreciated!

If you are looking at the MPG the thing on the dash tells you don't believe it!!! Get a pencil and and do it on paper.

It's normal, I get anywhere between 8 to 14 depending on how fast I drive.
