I just sold my 2001 Silverado, dually, x/cab,4x4. I took the truck from Indy to Norfolk Va. the first week I had it and running 75-80 mph and got 16mpg. When I got there just going around town and some expressway it jumped to 19mpg. I have checked it 2 times pulling my Cigarette from Indy to Lake Cumberland and once to LOTO and got 13.1 mpg. I went to a weight station and the trailer with the boat on it weighs 14,040 pounds.
I ordered a new 2003 that was built last week and should be here any day. Thats how much I like the Duramax.
Have fun with your new truck. Doug

I also have a Duramax Deisel. I not only use it as a tow vehicle, but also use as a plow truck here in wisconsin. I get any where from 16-19 mpg not towing and towing I manage to get about 13 pulling a 36 Apache. Total weight going down the road, 23,000 pds. The Allison transmission is awesome in the mountains with the grade braking. Our buddy Nykamp has the same set up and love it. We both have had no problems.

Look at the one Ambusher posted under lets see your cars or something he had a Hendrick motorsport package with the grill painted and ect it really helped the looks ,or p.m. him for pictures ..
I've used it its a 2003 with exhaust power chip ,air box ect and it gets 17 towing fast on highway with a 42 fountain #6 boat ,and various other boats it cool

Does anyone know the largest tires he can put on the 4x4 2003 dura -max ?????

Just got my 03 last Nov. and with the winter fuel I got 16 mpg, and just filled up today and got 18.5, and I really run mine hard, my friend has a 02 with 25k on it and tooling around town he can get 22, his foots not as heavy as mine.

Oh yea, and I love it so far, 6,000 miles.
