lmao 20mpg? Hahahahahahahahahaha

14mpg. 13.5mpg towing 7,500lbs though. You could squeeze 15-16 with a few induction/exhaust mods, and there is this perfect throttle position which keeps the RPM within 200RPM through all shifts. I'm sure that'* great for mileage. It'* indestructable though. You know those metal side marker things on highways? My dad was driving down an icy highway and slowly creeped over into that area, and hit about 10 of them. Only lost a small piece of chrome trim [you know what ricers put on the edges of doors and stuff]. Didn't dent the bumper, nothing. I wonder if fantastic88 could dent that sucker with his fist?
