This truck can achieve 30mpg combo C/Hwy

2006 Chevrolet Colorado LS 2dr Regular Cab SB (2.8L 4cyl 5M)
Review
This is a good looking truck. I like how it's on the smaller side. This allows for better mileage. I drive about 25% CITY and 75% highway and was getting a combined mileage of about 26 mpg. I then added a bed cover and increased the tire pressure to 40psi and now get almost 30mpg combined city/hwy mileage driving gently. Not bad considering this is a pickup truck. I would guess the highway mileage by itself might be as high as 35mpg. The only negative thing I've experienced so far is that occasionally the idle sticks at about 2800rpm even after it's warmed up. I can remedy this by turning it off and restarting it. Overall I am very happy with it. Too soon to brag about it's reliability though.
Favorite Features
Large tank (19+ gallons)
Suggested Improvements
Take the vibration out of the shifter.
