    2001 GMC Sierra Regular Cab
  1. Good numbers, the trail boss needs 6.2 and 3.0TD options. Hope regular cab gets the 3.0TD too.
  2. Throttle position sensor maybe
  3. I have a 2001 GMC Sierra with the 5.3 Vortec with about 211K miles. Over the past 5 months or so I've noticed the MPGs have TANKED. Be aware this is a Regular Cab 2WD! Early spring last year I was getting about 15-16 MPG with 75% hilly-city driving. Summer came around, I was still receiving 15-16 MPG. As of today, on my last fill-up I averaged 13.4 MPG. Previous two fill-ups were in the ~14.5 range. I very rarely pass the 2000RPM rev-range. I have a code that pops up every once in a while for a Downstream O2 sensor. I have a pending code for a UPstream O2 sensor. I've heard the Upstream sensors have a large play on MPG? Trucks rear end fluid, engine oil, and transmission fluid were changed May 2018. I also cleaned my Air Filter, MAF and Throttle Body about two days ago to attempt a quick fix. Any tips will help. Things I've also tried: Seafoam (2 weeks ago) runs wayyy better Marvel's mystery oil (mid-summer) did not change at thing...
