I would think that is great for that truck at 75 mph that is a heavy truck to be running down the road at that speed

Vehicle mileage

Try adding fuel injector cleaner to your vehicle when going on long trips to enhance gas mileage. It doesn't have to be an expensive brand; although the Dollar stores didn't prove effective. Make sure you buy it from an Auto Parts store and Advance Auto brand is just as good as any, but keep track of your mileage since on some vehicles, the increase isn't enough to pay you back for the purchase.

My 1998 Chevy Tahoe shakes real bad about 50 60 miles per hour and stopped at my 75 what's the problem

Jason, it can be a number of things causing the vibration..check the obvious first like Glenn Blevins answer. If that doesn't help then go on to the less obvious things..Like...
Hard starting or getting real bad gas mileage? (I know, the mileage sucks to begin with..I own a 2000 OBS Tahoe Limited so I know the mileage sucks!)
*Fuel pressure regulator..
*Spider fuel injection..Check these to make sure pressure is holding good.
*Distributor..They wear and act crazy...I'm in the process of changing mine now...It made my Hoe shake badly!
I don't know what the mileage is on your Hoe but I would say it's about time to start checking all the things I have mentioned.
There are lots of really good forums to get info on these trucks..OBS (Old Body Style) trucks have a large cult following so you will not be at a loss for info.
The vibration started at about 40 mph and would chill out around 65 mph...I knew it wasn't tires/rims on mine so I hit the forums and found a new world of info and testing to do on mine.
If it turns out to be a worn distributor on yours, go to ebay and purchase an billet aluminum made one..about 5-10 dollars more than the stock plastic shell OEM one that came on the truck.

4.7Ltundra 2006 only getting 8mpg? should be 14 in city...

Well take a few things into consideration.

1. Is the truck lifted? If so it can effect your mpg.
2. Does the truck have oversized tires? If so this can effect your mpg.
3. Has all the routine maintenance been done? If not it can effect vehicle performance and gas mileage.

A few things to do would be replace your fuel filter and air filters. Check the spark plugs as well. Keep up on the maintenance and gas mileage should return to normal.

1989 audi 200 low gas mileage at 10 mph

Just a silly much driving do you do that is at 10mph? Most times this is less than if everything else is fine why be concerned? As far as the why of it, you could have a slight vacuum leak or any number of sensors that are very slightly out of range, not enough to cause a problem, but enough to change mileage expectations. The addition of ethanol to our fuel has also impacted fuel mileage...The dirty little secret about any alcohol fuel is that nearly twice the amount of alcohol is necessary in order to produce the same energy output of gasoline...which will definitely lower mileage. Some power can be "recovered" by increasing compression ratios and changing engine timing (advance)...However today's vehicles are calibrated and built to burn gasoline and cannot without, major mods, be made to use anything but. Alternative fueled vehicles make a compromise in these areas but a compromise is just that.

Low gas mileage on Subaru Outback 2003

Sometimes a bad engine temp sensor (not the coolant gauge sender) will cause the ECU to stay in 'choke' mode.
