I found a gov web site that had tested all the things like the tornados and other additives, that turned out to be junk. I could not find it again but did find this.

I was surprised to find how much tire pressure does effect gas mileage, especially if you have the 20"s. I went from 32 to 38 and noticed a 4-5 MPG difference on the highway... seriously.

It depends on what mods you already have. Think about it this way, you're getting better fuel economy than I am in my QC right now. Getting on the dyno this afternoon to check A/F...might be just a tad rich.

True, but my truck is stock. I don't plan on increasing the tire size. The only mods I'll do, is a grill guard, headache rack, & tool box. I believe their is a product out their that will help me get atleast 16 mpg. What do you think?

Your just not going to get mush in the way of mileage due to the size and it being a 4X4. IMHO.
