2012 5500

O.K. so there are no 2013 5500s out there to compare fuel mpg. How About 2012 5500 with 4:88 and asian auto ?

what kind of bed do you have on it and what size tires? I am going to be running 4.88's with 36" tires with the auto on my 13 5500. 2000 rpms at 70 mph plus a single rear wheel pick up bed.

I only have 500 miles on the truck and still working on it. I have put the bigger tires on it and have not calibrated the speedo, and I got about 10.5 on first tank. That is uncalibrated speedo. By next week, I should be done with it and then I will be able to check some numbers. I was hoping for better.
