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

I think I'm getting about 17...but I'm not really trying...
Same here my average is about 18 combined.
Are you going by the truck’s readout? Or your own figuring? I’m regularly getting 21-22mpg, about 80% highway.
Mine is doing the math not using trucks computer but the computer it's close
Gettin' 23.2mpg as of today on the way home from work.
How do you calculate mpg
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.
22.7 mpg. Probably 50/50 city and highway miles.
Recent vacation 50/50 highway/2 lane.....22.8....400 mile trip.
And of us who’re getting 22ish mpg, how many drive with ect on by default. I do.
That's pretty respectable.
I average 18.5 with my 11 sport
18 in town and 22 highway.
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 average 22-23.5 consistently
Road trips better. Think i averaged 26 last year.
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
