I have the same truck...08 CC LE .... and I get 12-13 in the city.

It is tad better than my 04, but my 04 was a 4x4 and the 08 is a 4x2.

Tires and wheels do affect gas mileage, along with how long your letting your truck warm up in the mornings, driving habits, winter grade fuel, tire pressure, driving distance and the list goes on and on.

Also it doesn't help that its got a mean V8 that loves to just run.

Try and keep your foot off the gas, or if needed use the "2x4 mod" :D

My mileage always drops a few in the winter. I think it may have to do with their winter grade of gas and the fact that I'm always warming it up. I'd say 13 in the winter and around 15 in the summer.

Remember though, a lot of folks here need remedial math classes too! :paranoid: You don't say if it's a 4WD but assuming it is and you have the lower tow/OR gearing, you're about where you'r gonna be for around town use. HWY mileage should be upwards of 17 or so.

It'll go up a little in the summer when you get the engine broken in and winter gasoline is gone.

I've been averaging 11.4 - 12.75 mpg. per tank of gas. Roughly a 50/50 split between city and highway driving.(much less when playing with the supercharger) Yeah, it hurt's to put $80 worth of fuel in the truck only to get 270 miles from 23 gallons of gas. But it is what it is. "Winter grade"fuel is a freakin' scam!!!:flame:

This is the second time I have seen comments on "how long you are letting it warm up". Is it making it worse to let warm up?

You burn gas while going nowhere. You are getting exactly 0 miles per gallon. Wasted fuel.
