    I have owned my truck for over a month and have not checked mileage. It was not the most important factor in buying my truck. I took a trip last week and got 21.2 for 3 consecutive tanks. WTF? Never expected that. Do i have a freak of a truck?

    Mine with a winch, bumper, shell, bed full of get un-stuck tools, 3" lift, and 33" tires gets like 14 mpg until I put it in 4 wheel drive then you can pretty much just watch the gauge drop haha.
