And just for the record, that is hand calculating and yes it is 4x4. Between the 6 speed trans and active fuel management I'm very impressed with the mileage.
I know this winter whenever I throw my sled in the back of the truck and haul ass to the yoop, the GMC will be hauling 90mph.
What size rims? I think my 20" rims with the bigger than stock ATs are hurting my fuel economy. Too bad I didn't find a truck with 17's. Oh well, bought it used (looked brand new) with 16k miles on it for a nice price.

Dude your rim size means nothing lol. It's the diameter of your tire that effects your gearing ratio. A truck that comes with 22" wheels will have a tire with the same diameter as a 16" wheel(very close anyways)

More rotating mass DEFINITELY will hurt fuel economy. Bigger rim, heavier rim. Bigger tire, heavier tire.

rim size does matter. bigger rim = more weight = more rotating mass...

I went from this 3 place back to the open for now. I have hopes of a bigger pickup and enclosed, this year, but we'll have to see. The black outfit is what I get to cruise to the mountains in every year regardless.

The second picture is my bitchin' Alero...that thing hauled a lot of shit, including the Wolfsled to the UP and back a couple times.

Then I got sick of having to borrow people's pickups to haul stuff, because I had no place to store my trailer, and bought this piece of shit arctic cat GMC Canyon.
