Gas Mileage

I have a 2012 GC with the 5.7L and 18,000kms. The gas mileage sucks! The dealer is trying to ensure me that it will improve after driving it for 25,000kms or so. Has anyone else noticed that the efficiency of the engine and gas mileage greatly improves after a while?

You will see a little bump once the engine breaks in. Odds are it will never get "good" mpg though.

No way, you bought a heavy *** vehicle with a V8, not good aerodynamics, and you aren't getting good gas mileage? That is odd...
