Pulled out my sticker......for my Manual transmission it is 17city 20highway.

The best I have ever seen was 20.1 mpg on a trip from Flagstaff, AZ to Gallup NM; empty trip. At the time I had 285/75/16 with 3" fagtech lift. Since then, I have added campershell with roof rack, lowered the truck to a 2" lift (OME), and down sized to 265/75/16 (E-RATED ). The best I have seen with this setup is 19.3mpg hwy, though I had 300lbs of hunting gear in truck. In town I average 17-18 empty truck.

I would think twice about a smartphone. Neither Apple or the android phones gives a flying flip about your privacy. Worse still -- they absolutely do not believe you have a right to privacy.

Caveat emptor.

25.3mpg is my record

95.5 V6 Manual 212k
Pretty much stock (AKA, not 400lbs worth of aftermarket armor; no lift, etc.)
Got Redline Oil/Fluid in everything; OEM Oil Filter / Air Filter
I use Chevron w/Techron 92

When I drive my truck on the freeway at 70mph, I get right around 20-21mpg
When I take the scenic route; with a max speed of 45mph, is when I'll get 24-25mpg
And I don't mean I once saw that # randomly on a scangauge while going down a hill in gale force winds while in neutral;
This what I'll get on a tank I put 220-something miles on (I usually refill when the needle hits a half-tank)

My goal is 26mpg... I may have to drive at 40mph with people furiously honking and passing me
But, I think I can do it
