Have you been putting these numbers in your fuel log? cause your 90 day is only 18.96.

Whens the last time you put in new shocks? I put in front shocks, and didn't see much improvement in FE, but the ride was much better, and after I put in the backs I've noticed a significant increase in Fuel Economy. One shock was blown.

I've noticed that I can take turns 10 miles an hour faster than I used to, which is why the FE has increased.
Yes sadly I have already put in the new numbers. Way too many city miles at 16mpg keeping the number down.

Can't say I've checked the shocks lately. The ride does tend to be kinda ruff with the higher tire pressures. I picked it up at 39,000miles so I'm guessing there still the stock shocks (up to 71,000miles now). Something worth looking in to. Thanks for the tip

Adjusted for my driving habits. 80%city/20%Highway.
20mpg city/30mpg highway or bust! Check out my mods so far
