    Sure, you can get 35mpg, coasting.


    I don't know about the Yukon, but my Dodge truck is rated at 18 hwy, 16 city. That said I do about 25 highway, but only 14 in the city. It's all in how you drive, but 35mpg just aint happenin. Especially on a ride with that many miles.

    I've got a V-6 blazer, (much smaller than a Yukon) and I get 14mpg driving downhill. Most of the time it's 12-13.

    I have a straight 6 powered Trailblazer, and get about 15 mpg.

    Same shape, smaller overall profile.

    My brother has a Tahoe same thing really, and he averages 13-14 mpg. We did a trip up north in it all highway and he got 17 then. Plus with that kind of mileage she is really asking for trouble...

    I have a 2003 Yukon, 5.3 V8. On the highway, keeping my speed to 70-72, I get 17 mpg. If I stay on two lane roads, 60-62 mph, I run 18 mpg. Pulling a 4,000 lb boat and trailer at 65, 13 mpg. Driving in city traffic, no idea as I avoid cities whenever possible. Driving around town running errands, 15 is about average.
    It's a wonderful vehicle for pulling a trailer, hauling tools or four full-size adults. When I'm not doing any of the above, it stays parked and we use my wife's Subaru.
    If I wanted people to like me I'd be a fireman.

    I want a Civic.
