I bought a 1998 Oldsmobile Bravada a little over a month ago and I noticed that the mileage that I am getting is considerably less than when I had a GMC Jimmy. What are any of you getting for mileage? On the interstate it said 14 but I am also getting that in town. Any suggestions?????

Does that number change if you mass the gas pedal about half way to the floor or does it stay the same...one of the display's is average mpg on that tankfull whereas another mpg is "right now at the present time" which should change with the gas pedal position.

I have checked and the instant mileage reads anywhere from 13 to 18 on the interstate depending on the wind. The average of a trip that we took was 14. Is there anyone who gets better mileage? What should I do? I already have a K&N air filter in it.

OK, my '97 shows 16.4 so I guess a tune-up is probably the next option if you don't have a check engine light and you have 31 psi in your front tires and 28 psi in your rear tires.
