Just got back from a 600 mile road trip. With 22" I got 14 MPG. All highway mileage. I was monitering the average GPM. It was dropping lower and lower when going across Aligator Alley when I was doing 95mph.:shhh:

12.2 in the city and 19.6 on the highway, we just got back from a 616 mile trip, very pleased with that, did a little tuning and raised the tire pressures before the trip. :)

All original and I get 15.5 in mostly highway conditions. And after reading this I'm not sure I want to change now.

I've got 20" rims and no engine mods of any kind and I get 15.3 - 15.5 mixing highway and city. I haven't taken a road trip yet as I just got the truck a month ago. Road trip is scheduled for Thanksgiving.

Can people start putting there engine sizes up as well with there gas mileage. The 2WD version has a smaller V8 then the 4WD 6.0 engine. I was wondering if thats why there is a big different in our posts. Also if you live in a climate that you have the A/C on all the time.

I know my neighbor's son has a Chevy Avalanche with a 5.3L engine and he get 10.8 arond town, almost 2 mpg less than my Escalade and his parents Escalade. You just really have to lay into the pedel to get it to go.
