That's better than I get with my non ZR2 2004 4 door 4x4 with 31's, everything else is pretty stock... Sounds about right on par.

The 4x4's were never meant to be economy vehicles unfortunately.

Maybe look into the air flow, spark plugs and wires, and maybe as far as making sure the injectors are nice and clean. Fuel filter changed recently? If it's sending dirty gas it might effect it. Not to sure really tho... I'm more hands on then educated lol

and here I thought that me getting 350km/tank was bad(217miles).

got no mods on her, just a lift kit and stock 29" tires.

I'm up in Canada, but for some reason I get even more mileage with US gas. The max I've gotten on one tank was about 470 km (292 miles)
