If I drive it like I stole it, I average 11 mpg. This is with a 4x4 LE with big wheels and tires (heaviest and worst on gas). If I baby it on the highway, I can brake 16 at 70+/-mph.Tmation said:Just filled my Armada tank for the second time (still running in), wow this thing drinks juice. First tankfull got me 13.5 mpg second fill up 10 mpg, is this normal? I have been driving it like a granny, not using more than 3000rpm and only light throttle most of the time, plus the odd 3/4 throttle burst. I would hate to find out what it does if I drove it like I had stolen it?
Good job petrol only costs a buck a gallon here.
One other thing, the suspension feels very soft. Hit a dip on the highway and it wallows about (front to back), feels like it is running on springs with no damping (very bouncy like an old Yank tank), does anyone else suffer this? The Yukon SLT auto ride I just sold was a far better handler and much better comfort (plus I averaged 18mpg)
I have no bouncy feeling to speak of. Have you checked your tire pressure? Changing my tires firmed up everything dramatically and would address both problems.
