    Average of 12.8 too/from padre island this past weekend carrying a semi-light load. I37 going 80/85 saw it drop down to 12ish. But the big arse cargo box on roof does not help MPG.

    Between 10 and 11 L/100km is typically what I get on my daily commute in summer (it's only about 15km).
    If I pay close attention to my shifting and don't hit any red lights, I CAN get to work in the 9.5 to 9.8 range.

    Mileage has improved on my stock 2018 DCLB OR, which has 28,000 miles on it. I get 16-17 mpg in town and typically 19-20 mph on the highway going 70-75 mph. My best was 24 mpg. These numbers are calculated at each fill up, and not using the truck’s computer.

    With the stock weight of this truck and a fairly small liter engine, three points...
    1 Modification's severely affect mileage.
    2 Driving style severely affects mileage.
    3 Speeds above 70mph severely affects mileage.

    Just did 900-1000km road trip and was averaging 10.5 - 12.5L /100km on the highway in S5 most of the way - S4 on hills.

    Includes my roof rack, a back seat full of luggage and a load from Costco for the higher numbers.

    Mostly city driving. Shifting around 4k.
    By definition, if it has a manual transmission it is, in fact, a racecar. :cool:

    With the stock tires I was averaging 20 combined.
    I put on e-rated cooper 255/85/16 stMaxx and it'll still report 18-19 but obviously off because of the larger diameter tires.

    Thought this was funny, stock tires and pretty sure I was on the flat 405....

    Lean air/fuel mixture (less fuel per volume of air) = hot vs. Rich air/fuel = cooler combustion temperatures.

    so U believe

    rich essentially is INEFFICIENT............. resulting in MORE HEAT

    as most INEFFICIENT SCENARIOS

    the correct air fuel mixture would be NEITHER

    true a very choking EPA lean mixture is no better

    over the entire RPM range unfortunately the average engine will experience

    lean & rich running under different ‘ LOAD '
