Love my D/A. Milage is sensitive to driving style. In stop and go traffic coming home this weekend it pulled up hill on idle.

I've had mine (2004 Silverado 2500HD D/A) for 2 years and love it. I get 18-19 on its own, and 13 or so towing my 25' Safari. Except when towing against the wind in Kansas. Then I could watch the fuel gauge drop.

As for hp and torque - it is the 6.6 liter, don't know which engine, however. Like Over59, the danged thing will idle itself uphill. Plenty of torque for me.

Well after several days of pulling my hair out (not much left as it is!) We have a nice truck coming our way; LBZ/CC Black w/ Charcoal Interior. Should be sharp!

They are really moving fast due to the 0% and all the speculation about the 07 diesels. It was hard to find a truck we wanted, it is coming from 2 states away!

Hope it gets here soon, as we are leaving tomorrow on a 300 mile trip!

Congrats on the new truck. You're gonna love all that torque! By the time you get her broken in, around 20K miles, you'll notice the change in mpg.
Happy trails

In dog years, I'm dead!
