Dropping in to say hi and just joined the club!  We bought our 02 Z71 w/ tow package a month ago and so far love it!

Funny story however, never thought Id buy a avalanche as most weve seen were a lot of money, however by chance we ended up buying one over a mistake our local dealership made, best mistake Ive ever encountered that benefited us  :wave:

Sup everyone. Thanks for the add. I own a 2004 Avalanche z71 and have definitely grown to love this truck. Done some slight cosmetic mods to it, nothing crazy since it's my daily and my built 05 Mustang is my other toy

Just picked up a 2006 Avalanche 1500 Z71 with 155kmi in Dallas TX, and drove it back to Rochester NY. Pleasantly surprised to get 18.9mpg with 70-80mph highway speeds. The wide gearing will take some getting used to, as downshifts were pretty aggressive. Has anyone used a GearVendors splitter with their Avalanche? If so was it worth it? What benefits have you seen?

First welcome to the website glkssailor!

Hope you have many happy and safe miles in your AV.

That is good mileage for an AV, did you do the math or just get MPG from the DIC on the dash? You may find the shift points to be different if you use the tow/haul mode. The AV has a learning system that will adapt to your driving style over time so I would just give it time to adapt to your driving style. The previous driver may have driven the AV differently from you.
I have never read where a site member here has tried the "GearVenders splitter" so don't know if you will get a reply on that issue. I am not familiar with that product myself and would wonder the cost of product plus install would be vs. gas savings and would guess that you would have to drive many miles a year to get it to pay for itself.

First post but not a first time AV owner, my first was a 2002 black z71 that had been around the block a few times, I sold it in may and  Just picked up my second avalanche which is a 2002 Z71 black 2500 with the 8.1L .
