Hi, new here, getting a 99 lightning, what's the MPG? how can I get more? thanx

hi, I know the gallon per mile is pretty low? how much is it? I did search...cant find it?

Also, how can I improve it? I am thinking alloy wheels instead of the bulky steel ones? Anybody recommend a site?

also, here is what I am picking up this weekend,

It has alloy wheels on it.If it is a Lightning. The stock tires are wide and short. If you get smaller foot print it and taller tire should save you gas. I really dont think that it is going to be much.

If you can't afford gas buying a Lightning is a bad decision.

They have alloy wheels stock and get 12city/16highway

AT full (stock) boost 9mpg.....

I drive 95% on the highways and seem to get right around 17, but I usually drive with a rather light foot (WPD is thick on Kellogg [US 54-400].) Back when 93 was available it seemed to help, but alas, no one in SC KS carries it anymore.
