Look around the forum. There are numerous threads answering your questions.
Fuel economy varies a bit, but the usual range is mid to upper teens, say 15-19 city, and a little better on the highway. But, with that being said, it depends GREATLY, on the driver, and how you drive. The faster you drive, and the faster you accelerate, the worse your mileage will be. And I've not seen or driven any other vehicle, that makes it as evident as my truck. If I'm really good, then I'll average 21-22 in town. If I'm not good, then it'll usually be about 16 in town. (big difference)
Diesels are very efficient, but these aren't diesel cars. These trucks weigh a lot, so the motor still has to work. (my truck is 9,200 lbs)
Don't burn your bridges, you might have to cross them again in life.
Don't sugar coat things. It covers up the taste of real life.
