18mpg and change... yea, I wouldn't change a thing as far as mpg goes. Heck, I don't even get that in my .5 ton Dodge Ram regular cab 2wd Hemi with headers and superchips on econ mode. good for you.

Geez, if I'd known I could get 18 on a chevy 8.1 I might have tried to find one. I was getting around 14 mpg with my Chev Avalanche 5.3L with the 4.10 rear end empty. To add insult to injury, it basically wasn't enough to pull my 24' trailer. What rear end do you have and what are you getting in the city? Those things are beasts. You can surprise some pretty quick sports cars with those.
