That's some good mileage you're seeing. I'm sitting right around 15 mpg right now. Should go up a little once I burn off the winter blended fuel.

On a side note, unless you always service your own vehicle, you might want to change your odometer display to not show the decimal point. One member said a service tech didn't notice the period, and recorded the wrong mileage at his last service. He's no having to jump through hoops to get that corrected. It would suck if a service tech recorded your mileage as 205,576 mi instead of 20,557.6 mi. That would mean all your warranties are expired.

Thanks.

And it would mean that I am a heck of a lot older.........:D

But yes, I still change the oil and filter. Cabin filter. Its been in the dealer for a wonky passenger side mirror. Only thing that has busted so far. Well except for that intermittent tail gate lite. Great Truck so far.:cool:

Kind of hard to compare. Many things can throw your mpg off. Summer vs. winter blend, ambient temp, & a big one for me is wind. On a day of 15-25mph wind I can get 2+mpg difference depending if I am heading into the wind vs. it at my back.

I had a ‘19 DT with 3.92’s and on cruise I consistently got 20-22 mpg highway. With my ‘21 2500 with 4.10’s I’ve got 19 under the same circumstances. That’s not hand calculated but still a good indication of what you can squeeze out. Of course, you lose the fun factor so I don’t squeeze too often.

100% I get on average 16.5mpg the only time I ever see anything in the 20 range is going down hill drafting an 18 wheeler with the wind at my back. lol, but worth it!

I don't believe anybody on MPG on their vehicle. This one seems to be
a whopper...........
I am pretty good with a computer. I suppose I could have "photoshopped" the pictures huh :33: But, I am not that good. Would have taken me hours. I have nothing to gain. People worry about gear ratios and MPG. And now due to Hi Gas Prices. I thought it may be relevant. But you can have it your way. Whopper. With or without cheese. :gr_grin:
