lbz mpg???

What are you guys with the lbz's getting for fuel mileage? When i bought my truck about a week ago i was getting between 16 and 17 mpg. Yesterday i did about 150 miles of moderate towing(nothing very heavy) and dropped down between 12.5 - 14 mpg on a bone stock truck? i really expected better fuel economy with this truck.

With the right programmer you can get up around low 20's. but that sounds about right for stock set up.

I get about 19 out of mine empty, I pulled a cattle trailer on I44 in Missouri and got 17, it was empty though but I thought that was pretty good.

Truck will do 20 or over but I do too much stop and go or drive too fast on the highway to get a whole tank over. My average is roughly 16. Best tank to date was 19.2

Dic says 18. Realistically probably 17. I'm on 35s though.

I guess that must be an option? My DIC has no fuel information that I can find, just hour meter, trip meter and odometer....
I am jealous!
Cheers,
