    none so far, to/from san diego for retune I got 18+ @ 65-70. Drive there has hills and some parts where its only 2 lanes so Im constantly on/off the gas. Thats also with the romping I did with justin. Ive tracked my mpg's since I got this truck, so once I get 3-4 more tanks through, I'll be able to tell if there has been any decrease for sure....but nothing noticeable so far.

    good, makes me feel better about doing it one day. Not in the cards right now, but when funds allow I may drop one in. I'm still debating a DD anyhow. But things always change

    Nerp. Weve just gotta play with my setup a bit, or I deal with it for now and wait until I get a bigger intake and/ or heads

    All depends on your mods and how you drive it performance mods can make the engine more efficient but if u drive with a heavy right foot you will definitely eat more fuel

    I actually gained MPGs on my 5.3L Tahoe when I did a cam and LTs. I did however have a mild cam good for a DD and a blower; I will caveat that I HATE lope, so it was nice a smooth but had a slight grunt. All depends on what cam you are running, as well as your TC, and headers.
