Default what gas mileage does you colorado get???

I have a 2005 colorado Z71 4X4, with the 3.5L 5 cyl motor. I also have a cold air intake and an exaust system on it. My gas mileage is around 20-21 mpg. I though colorados got better gas mileage then this. Ohh and I don't drive it hard either, I keep the RPM's around 2,000. What is hurting my gas mileage or is this normal? What gas mileage do you get?

I have a 05 crew cab with a 3.5 and 4x4. I do mostly highway like driving to work, around 30 miles each way and average 40 to 60 mph. Mine is stock (no cold air or anything) and I get around 22. Not to be a jerk but Iím sort of glad to see your numbers with a cold air. This tells me it wouldnít help much so I wonít waste the money on one.

He would probably get a little worse mileage with out it.

I have a 05' 3.5 CC 2wd auto with a K&N CAI and have 96K mi on the odo. I just got one of the best mileage readings since I have had my truck on a trip a week ago. Got 380 miles out of one tank and filled up 17.7 gallons. I usually average 18 mpg if I don't drive hard on it. Sometimes if it's 90% city driving I will get 17 mpg.

I have a 2005 two wheel drive crew cab with the five cylinder, CAI, nothing else. This time of year I get 24 to 26 mph on the interstates (running 75 on 70 mph speed limit roads) and about 20 in town. I don't think I drive slow but I don't tromp on it just to slow down in a quarter mile. Our flat roads in MI help out alot.

My cousin put on just the K&N filter and didnít get any better MPG. You guys are making me wonder though. Am I just lucky or what? My lowest was 17 and my highest was 24. I tend to average 21/22. I have some stops but a lot of flat and rolling hills on the way to work. I was running 70 + through the PA and WV mountains while hauling a 4 wheeler and a few other things and it went down to 17. I came back the same way but empty and averaged 20/21. I am currently OK on HP but a CAI is not cheap and I wonder how much of an increase I would see with one. I mean heck, you guys aren't doing that much better with a 2x4.

My best numbers so far are 28 mpg highway...2005 GMC Canyon Offroad 4x4 CC with the 3.5L. All I've done to the drivetrain is an exhaust system from MBRP.

04 Colorado LS 4x4 extend cab, automatic 2.8L. 304.5 miles on 16.32 gallons of gas = 18.65mpg, city

I thought it would get better mileage being a 4 cylinder.
