Does anyone know the fuel mileage on a 2004 Chevy Silverado 2500 4x4 Ls crew cab? When i bought the truck there wasnt any info on this on the dealer sticker, it was blank. I heard it was around 10/ 16. Anyone have any info??? I have checked some web sites but they also have the milage spot empty..

You left out the most important part..! What size is the engine, and what is the rear end gear ratio? You can expect to get from 8 to 12 MPG, depending on how you answer the above two questions, and what kind of load you're carring.
What the window sticker said really doesn't mean a lot, those figures were under optimum conditions. The EPA has since changed the way milleage is calculated, to more honestly reflect real world conditions. It isn't going to be a world beater as far as mileager goes, and at $5 per gallon, it will hurt you, but if you need a vehicle that size, you can't worry to much about mileage.

Back in '04 the H.D. units that were over 8600 GVW
did not have to list EPA estimates.

I have an '04 K-2500 L.D. Ext Cab 6.0 V-8 with a 3:73 ratio and the
last time I check it was 10 to 13

I'll agree with Donn2390 Mileage was not the purpose of this
unit, But it sure hauls

we had a baseline 2004 gmc 2wd single cab and towing about 3000lbs we got around 17 to 19 to im sure the 4x4 version should get a little less than that. great trucks. Uhaul now has brand new 2008 gmc and they are really nice also.
