Is Silverado mileage false advertising?

Review

Overall I really like my '08 Silverado over my '01. The ride is much better and it's quieter. I got the 5.3 engine with 3.42 gears for better mileage, but I'm getting 12mpg city and 16mpg highway? My '01 got 14mpg city and 18mpg highway. notice mileage on this site is split between folks getting great mileage and folks getting really bad mileage. Something sure seems amiss! The cruise control doesn't seem to work as well as on my '01.

Favorite Features

Ride, interior, quiet cabin.

Suggested Improvements

Fuel mileage! Decrease weight. Why does the '08 have to weight a 1000lbs more than the '01. Sure it has more features, but a 1000lbs seems really excessive.
