    On full tanks of gas? Or are you just looking at the mpg readout on the dash?

    If you look at the detailed tests, part of the "new" testing is a high speed loop where they do hit 80mph.

    However.

    The average speed for that test is 48mph, and A/C off.

    The old highway test, which is still used, consists of an average speed of 48mph, max of 60mph, and A/C off.

    I don't think either of these are really representative of how people drive, but that's not the point. EPA fuel economy ratings are for you to compare vehicles, since the testing procedure is the same. They are NOT what you "should be getting..."

    Ahh, so it's like the posted freeway speed limits then. It's just a suggestion....:D

    If it's true, it only reinforces that it's the driver that determines mpg, not the truck.

    Full tanks, using math..the display is usually .3 better than actual. Drive with the flow of traffic in 35 to 55 speed limits. To get 25mpg have to baby it.

    My current tank is 10.9 L/100km which is about 21.5 mpg, my fuelly says 12 L/100km which is 19.5 ish mpg. That’s winter gas though, hoping to get it a bit higher in the summer, or at least maintain it with a tire upgrade soon.

    This is over the life of the truck. Went to ko2s 32inch tires very early on, and the last year I've had a 2.2 inch lift and 33s. Mostly highway, since I don't live in a city or get many miles from town driving. Lots off offroad trips. This is actually about 5% low too since I didn't readjust my odometer for tire size, and don't bother making the adjustment when entering gas milage.

    Here they are charted, the dip around July of 2018 was not long after I got my lift, but I also moved farther from work and got a commuter car, so the truck is only used for fun stuff which is usually on mountain passes, or requires a truckload of stuff in the bed, so milage dropped

    I'm city driver so 98% is at or under 40MPH. I average 15-16MPG. I don't punch the throttle, but I'm also not doing long coasting to a stop or red light. I'm below sea level, so no elevation changes.

    It's pretty sad that my MPG is that low on 100% stock truck. Stop-n-Go traffic can suck it.
