Same truck here and got 36k miles and can get 21-22 at 60 on cruise but in town about 16-17...

Thats according to the digital thing on the dash...

Have an edge powerchip and they did a study in Truckin magazine with this and it said to keep it on stage 3 to get better mpg and thats what I do, not sure what it is with the chip off never tried it..

I get about 13 mpg now. My truck is unpredictable because for the past few months I was barley getting 10 mpg but now it's up to 13. Sometimes when I go to the river I get 15-17 mpg pulling a 21 foot toyhauler empty but then other times I'll get 10 mpg and that really sucks because I expect that the truck could do better than that. Also to I use a calculator to get my info.
