    I can't seem to get better than 17 mpg. Even on the highway. Has anyone else experienced this?

    Are you going by the truck’s readout? Or your own figuring? I’m regularly getting 21-22mpg, about 80% highway.

    Reset your trip A or B to 0.0 at your next fill up. Drive normal. At the next fill up look at your trip take that number and divide how many gallons it took to fill up.

    Trip mileage says 300 miles
    Gallons to fill was 17 ga
    300/17 = 17.6 mpg
    Reset trip and repeat.

    The worst I've seen is 22mpg. The last couple of tanks are seeing any where from 430 to 450 and or when I get a fuel lamp. Figuring it the old fashion way shows 24mpg. I drive it at the speed limit with 31psi tire pressure. I don't do the hypermiling thing. My truck is a bone stock 2016 Crew cab LB V6.

    I get around 22mpg with my daily driving. I live in a "rural" New England so my daily driving never puts my speedo past 55. If I hit the interstate and cruise at 70+ my mpg will drop to around 18.

    I can't complain.


    Actually get around 21 MPG if I drive the speed limit.

    I have a hard time doing that. Around 80 MPH I average 18 to 19 MPG with a 4x4 V6 auto.

    When I fill up my truck only shows about 350 miles to empty at best, sometimes 330 miles.

    If you can't trust the truck's calculation, how can you trust the odometer?

    I would think more involved with the estimated mpg odometer is by tire rotation, speed rpm, idle all factor in to mpg
