    Can't argue with Chevy and the cylinder shut down method they use on the freeway to make better mileage.

    I can't say what my Boost gets on the highway at those speeds. Not as big a concern there. I love my mixed MPG. Towing last week made me feel as though I selected the right overall truck.

    Thats what its all about, really its about being happy in your truck.

    Glad your happy again Bradd. I know whats its like to be not happy in your truck man.

    Is that a 2wd? My dodge does the cylinder shut down thing too but I don't think they programmed it very well. It's almost NEVER in 4 cyl mode

    Nice truck man picking up a 6.2 high country this weekend decided with the 6.2L after driving both and didn't see a real noticeable difference in mileage

    David, my 06 ram 4x4 would go into 4 cyl mode all the time, at certain throttle pressure/speed/load, I added a aftermarket catback exhaust and you could tell right away due to the change in exhaust sound

    My Avy 5.3 would go to V4 mode, but never on the interstate at constant speed (without a load). I never understood why it did not drop to V4 at idle for a stop light, seemed like a waste. I could get it into V4 more often in the 42-50 mph range if I used Tow/Haul (with or without a trailer).

    My best trip from Pcola to Tampa unloaded was 19.2 in the Avy, 20.8 in the Ecoboost. My best loaded (boat) in the Avy was 12.8, the EB did is at 12.9

    In reality, the difference in mileage is so small, it doesn't matter. Pulling the load, the EB is a far more powerful tower.
