    I generally get to 130 miles or so before I hit 3/4 tank (on the interstate).

    thats not normal. I get 100-120 miles before I get to the 3/4 mark. Then another 75-100 miles to the half, and so on.

    I've read a lot on this forum about bad mileage but I have yet to see it.

    The worst mileage I've got so far was 19.4 this weekend since we were going 75mph w/ AC and 5 people, luggage and dog in the truck.

    Normally I get 20mpg as a daily driver.

    Personally I have not even come close to hitting 300 miles on a full tank. Last fill up I got like 270 on my 2010 dcab 4x4 and 3/4 of that take was all highway at 65mph or less. I'm running non ethanol gas and truck is stock except for the 265/75/16 tires.

    Stick on hood scoop from Autozone.
    Freeway driving = decent mileage, around 18 MPG (considering I have 33s)



    City driving = bad mileage (maybe 14 MPG)



    Hills = fuck me. (dont even want to know MPG)
