For the years I lived in Seattle, I averaged 17.5mpg, with a high of 19.5 on a few long trips. Now that I'm in San Diego, I average 16.0mpg. Traffic moves a little faster down here. ☺

Do you use your chip to get that mpg or just stock?

My last fill up I was getting just over 14mpg. My truck is basically stock except the intake. Winter fuel and idling time take away from the mpg some.
