12-10-08 $2.52 gal 166.7 miles/12.015 gal = 13.88 mpg (hunting-pulling trailor)

12-12-08 $2.45gal 218.7miles/13.952gal = 15.68mpg

12-17-08 $2.49gal 210.7miles/13.82gal = 15.25mpg

12-21-08 $2.09gal 286.1miles/18.735gal = 15.27mpg

12-26-08 $2.35gal 191.4miles/12.52gal = 15.29mpg (interstate)

12-26-08 $2.23gal 250.3miles/14.91gal = 16.79mpg (interstate)

12-26-08 $2.29gal 170.2miles/10.65gal = 15.98mpg (interstate)

12-28-08 $2.49gal 323.0miles/18.91gal = 17.08mpg

1-1-09 $2.38gal 171.5miles/12.87gal = 13.33mpg (interstate/mountains)

1-2-09 forgot to copy info (interstate)

1-2-09 $2.19gal 269.3miles/15.79gal = 17.06mpg (interstate)


Total

good numbers for stock, maybe after you do certain mods, you can get close to 20

I've gotten 19-21.6 in my truck a few times now. one time I had the gate down just to see, another time I had a refridgerator in the bed laying down, and the rest have just been driving on the highway and on country roads. I have a manual too so I dunno if that makes a huge difference or not.

manual shifts help, take less driveline power to turn them vs an auto.

good numbers man!

soon as i get my trans fixed and I get done with my playin stage, i will get some numbers for you guys. I aint driven my truck in a month, and only 3 times the whole month before that.
