I think you mean "MPG". I would hope your 2.9 can do 32mph lol

20mpg is actually not bad for this age of engine in these air dragging trucks. 32mpg, I would question the math and method used to calculate. 26mpg is the highest I have ever heard of this engine doing w/ a 5spd, and I still even question that as being valid. I would be estatic to get 22-24mpg.

There is something wrong with how you're calculating your MPG. A 22 year old V6 2.9L lead sled does not get 32 mpg.

MPH OR MPG? Do you live where all the mountains are downhill and you always have a really strong tail wind?
