    Nothing that comes to mind on those 4cyl. They are underpowered, but very reliable.

    Im getting killed at the pump driving the z71 in town right now.
    Also could be a great ls swap later on in life.

    I hear ya. The SS does best of 12mpg in the winter, but mostly it's in the 10's and 11's. Luckily I live 3 miles from work and don't put many miles on the truck a year.

    Ouch!! You should be getting better economy than that. Especially on stock size tires. You should consistantly be in the 14-16 range with majority city driving.

    Still... unless it's a decent size difference, you should be getting better.

    Actually, if you swapped in a stock LS1 and 6 speed, it would probably still get 20-22mpg average in an S10, and 25+ on the highway.

    I would think it could do even better with an LS1 6 speed in a little S10. Double overdrive and lightweight, small in size? I've had the 4.3 versions that would get 20-22 mpg highway.

    I have a 6.0/4L60E swap in a 72 blazer with 33" tires, shaped like a brick and weighs 4600 lbs. I'm getting 22 mpg highway, and 17 city. Good enough for me, drive it everyday.

    Ouch, I wonder how much that thing weighs. It's awfully thirsty. Those newer trucks are supposed to have VVT and cylinder deactivation. Things that I thought were supposed to help fuel mileage??

    I've owned two Sonoma's, one a 2.2 and the other 4.3,each very reliable. I got stranded 3 times in the Nissen and bought my Sonoma and never looked back. Very reliable. The 4.3 ocassionally needs the injectors cleaned from stalling a bit.
