Fuel mileage on a 2012 6.0

Fuel mileage on a 2012 6.0

Postby tombo [OP] » Mar 03 2012, 11:08pm

I'm thinking of buying a 2012 Chevrolet CC 2500 with a 6.0 liter. What kind of fuel mileage are you guys getting in this truck? Does it have V4 mode like the 5.3? Any input would be appreciated. Thanks.

I think that is the truck your looking at. If not there is a huge list of cars to choose from on there and all the info is from drivers reporting there actual mileage and fuel ups, not the EPA estimated crap they give you at the dealerships. Hope this helps!

$112 today from reserve notification, to full up, at $3.75/Gallon. That's an average of 8.2mpg. Um... that of course was towing #12,000... so in that regard, that isn't so bad!

Seriously though, I get about 14mpg on flat ground, with nothing in the truck. I average lower by me, because I am always up and down mountains (averages about 13).

Ran into another field trialer, bought the same truck as me (with extended cab not crew) but with 3:73 gears, he says he gets about 12mpg highway, so not sure that the 3:73 would be that underpowered.
