You guys are getting WAAAY better mileage than my wifes truck. We average 12.9 with about 70% on the highway. Best I ever maintained on the highway, doing 65, was 17. That was the BEST I ever got. She is not an agressive driver at all. Different story when my foot hits that accelerator. But even after two straight weeks of her driving, it's never higher than 12.9. Hand calc agrees with the EVIC within .2 mpg.
So be gratefull for all that mileage hovering around 20-ish.

Side note: I fully understand the reason for my poor mileage, I am only sharing that it can be much worse.
