'99 1500 4x4 5.2, extended cab, auto trans.
Used to consistently average 12 mpg, then installed a Fastman TB and Flowmaster muffler, now I get between 15 and 16 consistently.
Best I have gotten so far was almost 18 on nothing but flat highway miles.

I was at 13 mpg. Added superflow cat with 3.5 in. deuls straight out the back with 4in tips. Not omly does it sound fantastic I gained 2 mpg. Just tryin to do what is best for our fossil feul consumption. My next step is cold air intake and I hear getting a chip{hyper tech, jet, ect.} will help. Any one done this mod. Any suggestions.

Just added it up yesterday at the pump...... 13mpg []

5.2L 4x4 Standard cab

But...... I was running alot of places with the O/D off that I didn't really need to and was taching about 2 grand. Found out the places I can run O/D and am now taching 1.5 grand. I'll check back after the next tank and see what the results are. I haven't really had it long enough to give a solid answer. But so far I really like this truck.
