Looks like running the numbers, that your speedometer and odometer would be off by 9.6%, which means to accurately calculate your mileage, you should multiple the mileage on your trip odometer and multiple it by 9.6%, then add that value to the amount you have on the trip odometer for the total mileage you drove. (i.e. mine is off by about 3% therefore every hundred miles I drive I really drove 103 miles // for you that would mean every 100 shown on the trip odometer you went 109.6 miles). Good luck with your calculations.

2000 Blazer ZR2, K&amp;N CAI, 31X10.5 ATs, 3.73 gears. Never check milage during city/mixed driving, only road trips. Usually about 17-19 mpg with A/C on doing 75ish. Have topped out just over 20 mpg on a stretch of highway with the speed limit of 55 mph.

Don't warm it up so long

I've found that the 4.3... Or at least my 4.3, is pretty hard on fuel when it's idling.

I'm one of those people that only clears enough of the window to see..then drives off.....not much of a warmer upper...until I read about pistons not being round until the engine warms up enough...so now I warm it up just a little more than normal....I really think it's my thermostat..it's getting flushed here soon.....
