I'm right outside of worc. drive that area constantly - no drafting behind semi's don't want rocks on my hood/windshield - my next long road trip i'll snag pictures of MPG for you-all no joke and no idea how i'm getting it . i don't believe i drive conservatively i pass a lot i coast often have this annoying sound in the passenger seat all day that goes "stop slow ahh " ...(wife)
Arch Angel started following Leveling Kit or 4" Lift, 2016 Silverado /GMC power outlet on dash question..., Brake upgrades and and 2 others
Arch Angel replied to jamoka3's topic in 2014 - 2018 Chevy Silverado & GMC SierraI believe they have a 10 min timer after vehicle is off. Turns itself off after 10 mins.
HAHA nah , i assumed with the V8 on my trips i'd get 20..maybe 22 max highway while driving and stopped at rest stop for food/gas i looked at calculation it came out ot 28.6 - i did the math after fill up and it was about on par my math came out to 28.7something or other I was probably in V-4 mode alot as i coast/drive the same speed i don't speed up/down a lot. i normally get up to speed and just cruise at that speed. and plan my trips around dodging traffic. combined i get between 18-20 give or take. towing my boat i get 16-18
some questions -- do they make squeaking noise? i've read reviews on them on noisiness when cold etc. Do they actually stop better than OEM? I'm kinda curious if i just half a faulty set of rotors to start with from GM and got a bad taste for the OEM brakes lol.
So i tow a pontoon boat 20 ft boat regularly during the summer months rough weight 5k -- my stock brakes last year after first season of towing with it ended with warped rotors which pissed me off...so i'm thinking this year before i start towing i should upgrade brakes to something...durable/better What are some suggestions? i've read on power stop ,EBC---Hawk i'm thinking i want rotors and pads not fully interested in calipers but if that is something that needs changing to i guess so.. Ideally looking to keep it as cheap as possible with a quality product. ...prob dont get both right? 2017 Silverado 1500 5.3L crew cab - LT All star ~34k miles
Nothing? stock LT 4x4 crew cab - i drove from Central MA to bronx NY all highway measuring MPG and was getting 28.6mpg going 75-80mph sometimes downing to 70mph clearly speeding (limit in most area's 55-65) -- should also note rear of truck was filled with vacation stuff ~ give or take 400-500lbs of junk including coolers/food/etc -- inside vehicle was myself heavier guy 390lbs at that time (lost weight now down to 250 woo) wife 160, son who was like 20lbs. and random junk inside cab. i drive regularly to NH/Maine and get 26-28 depending on day/weather etc. Normal cheap shell gas .
I went into a K&N drop in, no MPG change or anything really same old same old. ..i can't see an airfilter changing your MPH from 18 down ot 13/14 there has to be something else wrong i could see 1 maybe 2 mpg AT most..check installation of air filter maybe it's in wrong? i get 18-20 city and if i do all highway at 70-75mph i get 26-28 in my 5.3l V8 Crew cab massachusetts area. so hilly terrain
Don't lift a 2wd truck unsure why anyone buys a 2 wd truck but...don't lift it you don't need height no reason for it. maybe a small level kit if you want to level it off but ensure you check warranty stuff.
Thanks for recommendation to talk to dealer- just spoke with them they are going to replace rotors on front (and measure back) . Although they don't do pads when doing rotors oddly enough.
ah, makes sense i just assumed OEM were crap cause i noticed this about 6-7k miles ago and have been just sitting on it a bit as it gets worse, Driving wise i don't hard stop unless i'm forced to i don't ride brakes cause i don't want to replace them or get dust on my rims haha. i do let off my brakes when stopped Hillstart helps on slight inclines and on flat your normally pretty good. also if i have to brake for a "longer" time while towing i do a "brake-stop-brake -stop " to allow the rotors a bit of cool down time between braking.
Interesting tho, i didn't realize the 3 years 36 covers EVERYTHING - i also purchased 5 years 90k miles extended warranty they said was "bumper to bumper" wonder if that covers everything... if it does best 2.4k i spent.
They know i tow, i've had issues with them and they tried to give me a damn loaner SUV when i was going on vacation while they fixed something on my truck i had to tow the boat back home at the end so they know I tow but what would that matter? truck has max tow package should be able to tow 3k lbs when it's limit is 12.5k
