my 15.5 gets better highway mileage than my 04.5 did. by about 2mpg on a long trip, I can push near 20 on the 15, while the 04.5 was around 18.

But I've heard the 04 LB7 got better mileage highway then the 04.5 LLY

Now towing, can't say as there is any difference.

In town, again, both are about the same.
