    Chevy Tahoe Gas Improvement?

    Any tips on how to improve gas consumption through a chevy tahoe? Any type of tweaking or replacing. Basically I will get 12 mpg through city and 16 mpg on highway through what company says. Even improving it to take 1 more gallon to the mile will be a big step in my eyes. I love the truck but gas miles just kill me. :X

    high flow airfilter and new exhaust. Exhaust will probably cost more than the savings will be, but will add power and sound better

    Seriously.

    I highly doubt any mods you put on it will improve your gas milage. Best bet is to get a different vehicle, or keep your foot out of it as much as possible.

    Re: Chevy Tahoe Gas Improvement?

    Good luck finding a modification to improve gas mileage that manufacturers of millions and millions of large, gas-consuming vehicles haven't figured out yet. If you do, make sure you sell it to them.

    Tahoes are not for people worried about gas mileage.

    Don't accelerate too fast, allow the engine to warm up instead of banging on a cold engine, and stay out of traffic.

    Yeah, a Tornado, and some of those Gas Pills, if you can't find them use moth balls.

    Get an extra battery, so that your car will use more electricty to run rather than all your gas.
