First MPG report

After 15 days of ownership I got my first hand calculated mpg results. 350 miles on 17.7 gallons = 19.77 mpg. Very good considering I do mostly intown driving and a daily 15 mile commute to work. Also more driving in 4x4 due to all the damn snow up here!!! lol
Overall I really like this truck, very peppy, good mpg, nice ride, and interior

Your milage is better than mine. Just took a 650mi round trip for a BMX race. Now truck has 1200mi on it. Filled up before leaving, all town driving 15.8 mpg. 300 mi later driving on interstate doing posted speed limits of 65 and 70 with cruise, she got 18.6. Filled up with 93 octane drove 40mi in town them headed home for another 300mi driving same roads and speeds and got 19.1 mpg.

IME, 55mph is the fuel mileage "sweet spot" - probably because that's the lowest wind resistance I'll encounter while cruising in 5th gear.

I've had a couple of 30mpg tanks, doing long stretches on a 55mph highway. Never quite as good on a 65mph freeway. (And the destinations are always more drab. )

Check out fuelly.com - nice way to keep track of your mileage.

x2 on using Fuelly.com, its a great way to keep up with mileage and see trends. I keep info on what gas station I went to and should also keep up with how I drove on that tank too.
