I reckon those Amsoil products are worth at least 1 mpg Robert, great stuff!
I think so. I am also running AMSOIL xl in the engine for the first time. I think I would be waisting the signature changing it out at 6k mike intervals. I still run the ac Delco PF63e. I’m happy

Alot of discussion on gears no matter which section of forums you are in..... Mileage, performance, towing, Offroad. Simple explanation is 308/342/373/410/455 - each step is about as close to 10 percent as you can get- So any changes one step will be minimal, about the same as 2 different drivers. Takes a 2 step jump to be significant. So in the end it comes down to how you drive. Over 80 need 373 or less(engine RPM). Always remember, the faster you spin driveshaft, the more relible the driveline is (less stressed).
Have a 2016 Yukon with the 3.42. Last trip from KY to FL and back I averaged 20-21 on the hwy, but that was at pretty much a constant 80 MPH.
2015 Yukon 4x4 5.3l engine w/ 3.42 rear end. Average 23-24mpg at 75mph.
What really surprised me is how much better it is than my pickup which has the same powertrain. My pickup only gets ~19-21mpg at 75mph, depending on a lot of conditions.
tell gm so it can come with it from the factory
I have a 2016 Yukon XL Denali (4wd) with 6.2L and 3:42’s. Range AFM Disabler always plugged in. It’s got 95K miles (regional account manager so lots of windshield time)...on average I get 23/24 Hwy and 15/16 in town. BUT I have also done a couple long trips with cruise set at 65mph and got 28mpg!
I do keep all maintenance up religiously, have a AEM dry flow air filter, clean the MAF sensor & air filter every couple months, and run a personal concoction mix of fuel system cleaners at least once a month with a fill up. Not sure if any of that matters but thought I’d mention it.
I should also add that I always (for the most part) use 93 octane fuel or at least 91....preferably Shell or BP.
To this day I’m still amazed at the mileage I get with the 6.2 and brag about it every opportunity I get! Lol
What’s that song?
I can’t drive 65!
me either, that’s why I average 20-23 at 80.
On the way to Daytona last week mine averaged 16.2 MPG at 78 MPH. 3.42 gears, no VVT, no AFM. AT Tires.
Ya the drive to one of my accounts is mostly 2 lane country road all the way there...w troopers everywhere along the route...lol. But I’ll still get 22+ running 80+ on I-70 usually
