2015 MPG check in

What MPG is everyone getting with the new 2015's. What speed are you running to get it and are you driving grandma style or heavy on the foot?

I just picked up a 15 this week. Did 350 interstate miles at 85mph with a heavy foot and just got under 15mpg.

I have the FX4 package with toyo open country A/T on.

Well. My truck with 35" Toyo M/T's I'm getting 15.2. It just turned 2 weeks old and 2100 miles. I have towed a 13k Skid steer and average about 10.7. I'm please. I will be changing my oil at 2500k and having the dealer adjust the Speedo for the larger tires. I hope it goes up, if not I'm pleased with the truck in everyday. Except the small fuel tank.

Driving 65-70mph around Dallas I'll average 19-22mpg. City between 15-16mpg. On a trip from Dallas to Houston the other weekend doing 75-80mph I averaged 19.8mpg overall. I usually drive with a light foot but if I am in a rush it will easily drop to 15mpg on the highway. Adding a bed cover improved mileage about 1.5mpg. Huge improvement over my 1000hp Cummins on 37's.

That is some good fuel mileage you get there. I hope mine gets better. Will see later this weekend with a shorter trip i will set cruise at 70 mph if i can get it up a tad. Not too worries bout it just curious to see what everyone else is getting.
Love the truck so far.

I read everybody saying "don't worry it will go up with miles." Honestly my mileage has been the same since I drove it off of the lot with 3 miles on the truck. I now have almost 3000 miles. It's just all in how you drive.. I'm only 23 years old but drive my truck like a grandpa. Accelerating a little slower when I put 150 miles a day on the truck saves up big time.

stock tires are 34.2", and your MT's are 35" (obviously) The difference there is negligible. I have the same set up and doing the math I think it's off like 3%? That means at 66mph your speedometer is 2mph off.

14.9 MPG. Stock truck with 18's (smaller tires than the 20in version), mix of city and highway. I usually drive conservatively but sometimes get after it. ~1300 miles on the truck.

Not sure how some people is getting around 20mpg with a new stock truck. Unless its a 2 wheel drive, 2 door and a short box.

I doubt your bedcover increased fuel economy by 1.5mpg- maybe by .15mpg. Many studies have shown that a cover is better than having the tailgate down but a mesh tailgate gave the best increase in fuel economy.
