I get 20mpg average, with sometimes lows of 17 and highs of 23. About 12mpg pulling a 23 ft. travel trailer in the mountains, with two bikes in the van.

The 02 and 03 have a diferent trans, The chip would have to be reflashed to work on them.
I replaced the water pump last summer and brake rotors and rebuilt the rear end with new seals last fall. Front end was all rebuilt when I put a lift on it last summer, too. She's in great shape.

IDK about the vans, but my pickup with 4.10 gears in the rear got 14-17 around town and low 20s on road trips if I kept it below 67mph.

10-14 towing the ex-'s Camaro with my GS-Adv in the bed.
