Another MPG thread...

I have 500 miles on my new truck and today my mpg rating hit 18.0.

Don't know how long that will last now that I am over 500 and will really start driving her hard.

Sounds good to me.

If I get 10 mpg towing I'm happy.

Talked to my buddy Bad Bert. He got a 4x4 F250 Lariet on Tuesday. Said he is getting 16 mpg. This was in Colorado and Kansas. I told him the sweet spot was at 80 mph. Try it out!

Tried mine out today. All kind of driving. In town, country, Interstate. Average 22 mpg. Now it is at 400 miles.

I really am curious what its going to do tomorrow towing the rig from the Gulf Coast to PA. So far it's a better driving truck than I ever expected.
