    in LSx the SLP underdrive pulley and new belts package $200 bucks or so will save 2-3mi/gal and give you 6-8rwhp. Not sure about v6 but look into it.

    14.2mi/gal... omg... that eats gas like a v10.

    I have a V6 Camaro with 115k miles on it -- was getting about 200 miles to the tank. Got a complete tune up, oil change and fuel injection cleaning, lube, etc. (in MD it cost about $700 for the total job) and now I get just over 300 miles to the tank. I'd suggest a good tune up to get started.
