    Just wanted to make a note that at Costco (San Marcos) the price of Regular was $3.059/ gallon.

    My low fuel light had just come on about 3-4 miles before arriving, the truck took on 17.76 gallons (which means there was about 3.5 gallons in the tank when the light came on).

    I traveled 255.3 miles per the trip odometer since the last fill up but corrected for my 265/75-16 tires (~2.5% slow) = 262 miles.

    The true gas mileage this tank was a disappointing 14.8 mpg (highway and around town driving). I usually get 16 mpg with the combined driving I did... ??

    2010 DC 4WD V-6 Automatic with 118,000 miles.

    sounds about right for gas prices.... the rest of the country that bitches about gas prices, come out to CA, especially socal.

    also... OP the 265/75r16s are 3.4% bigger so its 255.3 * 1.034 = 263.98 miles. Still though, if those are load range E tires... and lots of round town, sounds about right.

    I live in western canada and we pay 4.79 per Canadian gallon or 4.12 us per gallon. We also live 5 miles from one of the largest refineries in western canada. So we get really screwed over by taxes.

    Just read the post of the guy getting only 7 mpg. I guess I shouldn't be too upset at getting twice that?

    No, P-rated tires (All terrain) and more highway than in town.

    Oh, 3.4% is it? When I drive by the mile markers.. It seems to be a mile slow every 40 miles? 40 x 2.5% = 1 mile. Maybe it was every 30 miles slow by 1 full mile? I need to dig up mile notes from that Arizona trip!!
