Those are all reassuring posts, thanks to everyone for your input.. Guess I’ll just have to look at my motor height/ and learn how to trim better!I’m right there with A-K and see similar out of San Diego. In the bay, near shore, and on the way out in the morning, mileage is mid/high 2’s. Coming back in when rough, it’s down at high 1’s because I’m plodding along at 16 -18 mph, which is poor for mileage. My tank averages are consistently mid 2’s because of the mix of speeds and conditions.
My motor is the 4.2L. I don’t know if there is a known mileage difference between that and previous generation motors.
