Just got back from a road trip.

Normally my road trips include my enclosed trailer, this time it was just vacation. We started in MD, drove to Savannah GA, then to New Orleans LA, then Back to Panama City Beach, then back to MD. The whole trip we averaged about 17.5 MPG (reading from the computer) average speed was about 75mph. How are some guys getting 20 to 22 on there stock trucks?

Probably gonna catch flack for saying this, but i call bs on getting 20-22 hand calculated out of these trucks. I'm referring to a cc 4x4.

Yeah probably from the people that add 5 mpg to their final calculation

I can see 20 mpg for a stretch...but to travel 500 or 600+ miles on one tank - going through stop n go, up hills, etc...and dealing with regen...I cannot and don't expect to ever see over 20 (personal best is 18.8 currently - hand calced 640 miles on the tank). If I were on a flat road for 500 miles...maybe see 20...but haven't done that. If I drive 50 miles of flat road and checked...sure...but not over 100s of miles.

I've hit 19 several times on trips and 21 once coming thru Fl.All this is according to the lie o meter which is about .5 mpg off.The bad thing is when i'm getting this kind of mileage it always goes into regen and looses 3-4 mpg.

Before i put my new tires and wheels on i could bump 19 on the interstate at a steady speed and i averaged around 16-17 mixed driving. Since the new tires and wheels I'm lucky to see 16 on the interstate and 14 mixed driving.
