Fuel economy is not great, but it's not horrible either. Again, this is a full size SUV on a truck platform. How much can anyone truly complain when you know this going in? see full Chevrolet Tahoe / Suburban review

At $4 a gallon and a 32 gallon gas tank, you feel it every time you fill up and if you drive a lot in the city, at 15 mpg, you will fill up often. The vehicle actually garners a respectable 21 mpg on the highway. see full Chevrolet Tahoe / Suburban review

Poor gas mileage... but I knew this before purchasing it so this is not a problem for me. If gas prices scare you... then this is not the vehicle for you. see full Chevrolet Tahoe / Suburban review
