Well, we're all glad you're trying now? Think about a different commuter? That would make the biggest difference in my opinion.

There's no saving the z71. I've attempted to hypermile a friends same truck with a 5 speed. You can't eoc because the brakes and steering require a wrestlers upper body strength. He gets the same 12-14mpg. The engine is pretty tired though.
