I'm new here. I have a 1999 Chevy Astro van. I've gotten 26mpg the only time that I've measured it while pulling a small trailer on a couple hour road trip, measured round trip. I think it should be completely realistic for me to get 30mpg out of this vehicle with the mods listed on this forum.

But on the same topic I'm on another forum (name withheld) and have been told that its pretty much impossible to achieve this goal in the real world. So I'm going to do a bunch of reading on this forum. Then make a concerted effort to achieve this goal. Because either way, I will save a few bucks in any mileage gains that I do get.
