That would be a dream come true, i have the same truck... I get about 10miles to the gallon combining city/hw. Towing a trailor w/jeep, and some camping gear in the back of the truck, the best ive ever seen towing is 4.9mpg and that was because i was forced to drive 40mph part of the way, other then that its been about 4.5mpg.

Id like to know what you did to get that, i wouldnt even be concerned about getting rid of my truck for a newer one with cummins.

Something is up with your truck.

My 94 gets 10-11 towing the Jeep, and 14-15 on the highway. 5.9, 4.10's, and a stick.

That has to sting!!!
Are you computing you mileage by hand or are you using the truck computer?
