15 mpg is actually pretty decent.
I'm only getting about 12-13 in my Suburban. I'm lucky to get 16-17 on the highway.

all i have is the tourque app i bought, it dosen't show the timing but my inlaw has a few of the computer obd 2 readers he uses on his car so after i replace the plug wires ill get together with him and c what the engine is doing (kinda sucks getting 15mpg)

If a good bit of your driving is in town... 15 MPG on the 6L engine is pretty dang good.

I get typically 11-12 with my 6.0 and 16-18 highway. Maybe 19 if the wind is helping me out.

:withstupid:

What you are getting "is" pretty decent. If your fuel mileage decreased, then it is not from a rough idle. You either have another underlying problem, winter blend of fuel, or a higher than norm increase in ethonol, such as E85.

Im not familiar with these codes. What are the definitions for them? They should of came back with a P### or the such, which are ODB2 compliant codes.
