The three days below 0 MPG.......15.6........OUCH OUCH OUCH.. The engine coolant temp never got above 180 and I needed to drive several miles before the trans would shift into over drive.

Ouch x2

I hear you Mike. This cold snap is offering up some ugly baseline data. The morning temps have been in the low single digits rising into the mid-teens during the day (last 3 days or so). Temps before that weren't much better. Three trips into work netted around 19 MPGs and on the snow days, 4x4 dragged that average down more. Last tank was just a crack above a 20 MPGs average. One thing is clear: ethanol, while not great, isn't the biggest detractor to decent FE. Cold weather is king. I feel for those in the northern most states - that level of cold sucks!

I only had it in 4WD for about five minutes to get through some nasty drifts. I even used some cardboard to block the radiator. The killer was the trans not shifting into OD. The ultra guage was showing 13 to14 MPG before shifting up.

This tank is off to a BAD start!



This winter is really getting horrible. I couldn't go fast enough for 5th gear for six days.

Here was a 2nd gear day

I am LOVING the grill block though. It gets good heat in the cab now and the coolant is staying stable between 186-192F after it warms up.

Just checking in to report my best mileage tank yet, 22.6 mpg all highway at speeds up to 80+ (slower than flow of traffic). I thought the excessive speeds would've tanked the MPG but not so in this case for some reason.

I did just get rotated and balanced which fixed a ~70mph vibration, but I wouldn't think that would have much if any effect.

Now that's redemption from a bad beginning! 306.3 mi, 13.28 gal, avg 23.1 mpg.

It has to help that I FINALLY got those noisy, heavy all-terrain tires off the truck.

Well, pleasant surprise when I filled up Sunday evening. 418.8 miles, 16.48 gallons = 25.4 mpg! Had a little interstate driving in there, so that helped, but that is a really good tank for me in the winter. Long live the 2.7!

A little better on this tank. The trip to Breckenridge and back last weekend helped a lot with 32 mpg round trip.

535 miles on 18.474 gallons for 29.0 mpg.

To think I was happy today to get back over 18 mpg with around 18.7. I guess I'm just too aggressive. I didn't notice it much in the warm months but maybe with the addition of cold temperatures the duratracs are pulling it down some, probably also due to me airing them down a little in the winter. Perhaps the next set I'll jump to the Nokian Rotiiva as my experience with Nokian has been pleasant.

It was a short fill, not even 8 gallons, but I wanted to beat the price hike. With burning gas trying to jump a car for 40 minutes I averaged 20.4 mpg, my new worst ever.

We're supposed to get another foot of snow tomorrow. I don't know where they're going to put it. They just opened up my normal road to work with a road grader and for well over a mile the 'west wall' on that road is 10-15 feet high.

Hello All,

With all this talk of the cold weather I figured I would chime in!

Last week I drove to western PA from Delaware. The ambient temp was between 5 and 9 degrees F.

I got 18 mpg, all highway miles doing pretty much 70 mph the entire way. 15.6 gal for 280 miles.

The only caveat is that it was hilly, windy, cold and I have only 3500 miles on the truck.

I was disappointed with the mileage none the less. Worst tank I have had yet.

18 mpg doing 70 in a 4x4 not even broke in at that kind of cold is nothing to sneeze at. It can only go up from there!

I just got my worst mileage on A tank yet. I haven't filled up and done the math, and I'm not sure I want to. Gas light came on at 238 miles. We've had several days in the single digits and below zero, so I waste a lot by letting the truck warm up for 15 minutes before and after work, plus it's been in 4 hi for 70% of this tank.

07 AC 4x4 5 speed running on 265/75/16's. In the summer I do much better

I warm up for maybe 15 seconds even if it's 0F, why 15 minutes?

My job requires me to be outside quite a bit, so I'm dressed for the cold, no need for heat besides keeping the windows clear.
