    85% stop and go San Jose traffic. 15% stop and go highway :D This using the defroster quite a bit so I'd expect a little better in summer.

    Sound about right? I'm ok with it considering my other truck gets ~10mpg over the same course.

    It's definitely better than 10 MPG's! Hahahaha...but it still seems low to me. I dropped to 24-25 MPG's in winter (winter fuel blend, stop and go traffic, 250 lbs in the bed, and a LOT of playing around and sliding :D ) I think I would really have to TRY to get less than 22-23.

    Hmmm....Oil is clean, air filter (stock) is new. I haven't cleaned the MAF yet.

    24 in city, really? I was expecting 18 city/28 highway. Oh to be fair I did drive up a mountain, along trecherous single lane cutbacks at a slow creep for 1/4 tank :D

    Yup, I got 24.1 MPG's on my last tank with zero highway miles.

    How many miles does your truck have on it?

    Edit: And I'm sure that run up the mountain didn't help! Haha.

    just turned 44K on the odo. Yeah, no doubt driving 10mph for 2 or 3 hours didn't help...but it was fun.

    Truck is completely stock but well maintained, got it from my brother in law a few weeks ago. I'm loving it, fun to drive and yeah, better economy.

    I'm sure it will get better with normal driving. A 2-3 crawl up a mountain sounds brutal.

    I remember when I used to get good gas mileage.

    Joking aside wen my truck was bone stock on bay area gas I got low 20's. Now after lift, tires, etc I get mid ot high teens.
